HUSBANDRY NOTES: We keep these corals under LED or T5 lighting, in areas of moderate to strong flow. Feedings are not necessary, as the zooxanthallae provide nutrition for the coral.


NOTE: This is a stock item.  The picture represents something extremeley similar to what you will receive.  By selling stock items we do less photography and pass the savings to you the customer!  Also pictured is a mother colony.

Details

Back in the dark ages of the reef hobby (we’re talking the 1980’s, ok?), soft corals were THE corals in the reef hobby. They have been with us ever since, and we love their hypnotic motion as they sway in the current. They are a beautiful, diverse, and colorful element of the reefscape..

Soft corals typically lack a hard external skeleton, with some exceptions and are not associated with reef building. They form an important part of the reef ecosystem, and occur in many different reef habitats. They come in a dazzling array of colors, shapes, and behaviors.

And they’re just plain cool.

Like stony corals, many soft coral species contain zooxanthellae that live inside of their tissues, and typically do not require supplemental feeding. Of course, there are exceptions such as Dendronepthia, which lack zooxanthellae and require a continuous influx of phytoplankton in order to survive.

They are some of the easiest corals to keep in the reef aquarium, and are simple to propagate. With modest demands, great variety, superb colors, and ease of propagation, soft corals are great for hobbyists of all experience levels.

You can keep them under a wide variety of lighting regimens, ranging from T5 florescent to LED, to metal halides. They are generally adaptable and can thrive with moderate to brisk water flow in your aquarium.

At unique, we offer a variety of soft corals for almost any reef aquarium. All of our soft corals are either captive propagated, or sustainably collected from the wild, with accountability and responsibility in mind.
