Let us know if you have any questions or looking for something you don’t see listed. Chances are we might have it growing in one of our other systems
Current Parameters: We recommend trying to replicate the parameters these corals were grown in. This helps for an easy transition to your tank and helps the corals get off on the right foot.
Placement: Mount your new coral using IC gel glue, putty, or a combinations of both. Place the coral on a rock or ledge in a location that receives ample lighting and random flow.
Water Chemistry: Alkalinty- 7.5-8.5, Magnesium 1290-1350, Salinity- 35 (read salinity vs SG) , Calcium-400-425. Nitrate- 4-10, Phosphates- .01-.1
Lighting: 250-400 PAR Acropora corals require fairly intense lighting to maintain proper color. T5?s, Metal Halides, or LED?s can all grow acropora when the proper PAR levels are provided.
Flow: Medium to High. Our frag system has some major motion!
Feeding: We recommend feeding acropora corals with a combination of foods like Detritus, Zooplanktons, Phytoplanktons, Amino Acids and other Organic Proteins . A daily broadcast feeding while return and circulations pumps are stopped will ensure the corals have the ability to consume the nutrients they require.
