Hi Kevin or Mike! I purchased a orange cap a few weeks ago and wonder if you have any tips or suggestions on successfully keeping this coral. I have it in the upper third of my tank under 250ww MH 10,000k and 96ww PC actinic 03 lights. Thanks, Johnny
As you can see I keep my cap on the sandbed. It can do just fine under lower light and will not overshadow other corals. It needs to have enough flow over it to prevent derbis from settling on it.
It is a Leptoseris. The species is either explanata or hawaiiensis. A low light and flow coral that is a very slow grower. I've had some problems with it getting knocked off it's perch. It fell into my torch coral one time and I thought I was going to lose it. It is recovering OK now. I finally got it to stick using superglue.
Kevin what coral is the 8th pic down? Is that the acro I just bought when I came in with my wife?
Well I soon will need more corals. Just got a 125g half cylinder with 400w halide built in. Gotta sell the 75 now though...
anyways you better quit showing all your real nice stuff or Allen and I will be over to the place hounding you to frag it!!
Please keep the pics coming
