Product Description

Product Description

It is generally agreed upon that Rhodactis species are amongst the hardiest coralmorphs commonly available to the marine aquarist. Many require no supplemental feedings at all, and most are tolerant of varying levels of illumination from bright, reef-ready lighting (so long as they are properly light acclimated) to lower light situations (e.g., high output fluorescent bulbs). Note that the color of the animal is often related to the light level, and the more dramatic colored Rhodactis species often prefer higher lighting regiments. It s advisable to begin by placing the animal near the bottom of the aquarium until it opens fully, and then slowly move it up to its final position. Rhodactis species do best with low to moderate flow (if the animal does not open fully, the flow may be too strong), and they tolerate higher levels of nutrients than most commonly kept cnidarians. Nonetheless, general reef-type filtration is advisable. Unlike some other coralmorphs, Rhodactis species are considered semi-aggressive and may damage adjacent cnidarians that are not from the same genus. Allow room for growth and expansion, as a growing Rhodactis colony may overtake adjacent sessile invertebrates in the aquarium. Whil(more...),,-->
