I just picked this up and wanted to know if any other members have had any experiance with Lace Stick Coral, Purple/Blue I have also attached a couple of shots of it. Any tips on it would be greatly apperciated...Jeff
In captivity, Stylaster have a very poor record of survival, though unskimmed, Jaubert, and algal-turf-scrubber-style tanks may have a higher likelihood of supporting their needs. It is likely that these corals fail to thrive due to dietary insufficiencies. They need a steady, moderate current and are most natural-looking in dimly lit conditions, though exposure to light is not likely to be harmful. Ultraviolet bleaching of their skeletal pigments may be likely in an exposed location. Laminar currents and regular feeding with natural or substitute plankton is likely to be required in order to achieve success with these hydrocorals.
