Acropora sp - 6 Piece Stock Maricultured Combo Pack- We pick You save!

Availability: In stock

$425.00

You asked, we listened.  People love our maricultured pieces but can't seem to get enough of them so we decided to offer a stock pack with 6 assorted varieties.  Once ordered, we will carefully select colonies that are ready to ship right away.  No brown corals.  Everything sent will be strongly colored, well conditioned pieces on the original bases.  Almost all of these pieces come from Bali Aquaium, the originator of maricultured farmed corals in Bali.  Under strict supervision by Vincent Chalias, some of these pieces are only available through Unique Corals.  We will pick an assortement of colors.  If you have special requests please write them in the comments section at checkout.  We can't guarantee to meet all requests of course but we will try our best.  These pieces will typically wysiwyg for between $90-$130 each. 


Example request "Please no deepwater acropora, I need something with purple and no montipora.  Thx"   


We will send at least 5 acropora plus one montipora,  stylophora, seriatopora or pocillopora.  All colors will be very strong.  For an added small charge we can slice off 95% of the base leaving just the coral and a small slice of base.  Once in your hands you can dip the coral and glue it onto a rock or large frag plug if desired.  Pricing reflects a quantity discount!!  


The fine print:  Any doa claims will be handled as an even fraction of the pack.  1 coral is 1/6th of the purchase price regardless of species.  


CARE LEVEL:  Intermediate


TEMPERAMENT: Peaceful


PLACEMENT: On Rockwork or Rubble


WATER MOVEMENT: Strong


LIGHTING:  Bright


HUSBANDRY NOTES: We keep these corals under 400 watt 20,000k Radium metal halides on light movers. They do appreciate regular feedings of fine-sized foods.


NOTE: This is not a wysiwyg item.  Photos are for representation only.

Details

The genus Acropora contains some 150-odd species of stony corals. They are one of the major reef-building coral species found in nature. There are numerous growth form variations, ranging from delicate branching specimens, to massive plating varieties. They are super popular in the hobby, and we always have a great variety on hand.

Acropora may be quite demanding in terms of their care, requiring good measures of water movement, lighting, and food, not to mention stable environmental parameters. Water movement is perhaps even more important than lighting, as photsynthesis and respiration are strongly correlated with the intensity of water movement.

Lighting is very important to these corals, and is he subject of much debate among reefers. The bottom line: Acropora categorically favor moderately high to very high light intensity. You can achieve this through application of T5, metal halide, or LED lighting technology.

Acropora are surprisingly “hungry” corals, and will maintain optimum coloration, health, and growth. In addition to commercial phytoplankton and zooplankton feeds, these corals benefit from…well- fish waste! By feeding your fishes regularly and heavily, their waste products help supplement the nutritional needs of your Acropora specimens.

To grow healthy colonies of Acropora, it’s important to maintain high water quality in the aquarium. This means a high pH, consistent alkalinity and calcium levels, and barely detectable phosphate and nitrate levels.

Acropora require moderate to high levels of alkalinity and calcium, which can be administered via either 2-part buffer solutions or a calcium reactor. Magnesium is also important to Acropora, and can generally be supplied via frequent water changes with a quality salt mix. If magnesium levels are still low, as indicated by a test kit, it may be supplemented via commercially available products.
