Overview

ORA® Oceans, Reefs and Aquariums Beginner Hardy Pack is a collection of small polyp stony (SPS) corals carefully selected for their hardy and fast-growing nature. This collector's delight featuring a selection of colorful, "designer" aquacultured SPS corals including one each of the following ORA corals: (1) Green Birdsnest Coral (Seriatopora guttatus), (1) Mint Pavona Coral (Pavona frondifera), (1) Stuber Acropora (Acropora sp.), and (1) Pink Polyp Capricornis Coral (Montipora capricornis), and (1) Pink and Green Pocillopora damicornis Coral (Pocillopora damicornis).

The ORA Beginner Hardy Pack is an ensemble of truly aquacultured specimens offering the beginning reef hobbyist the opportunity to create a successful reef aquarium landscape full of exciting colors and diverse shapes for a distinct and vibrant display. With the ORA Beginner Hardy Pack, you can be assured of receiving some of the finest aquacultured coral frags available. ORA's professional team hand selects each of the four aquacultured SPS species to ensure you receive a prime mix of their popular SPS coral frags.

ORA coral frags will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, T-5s, powerful LEDs and up to the more intense metal halides. The ORA aquacultured corals satisfy the majority of their nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. Under the right conditions, the growth rate of aquacultured corals is more rapid than most of the other corals found in an established reef aquarium.

To maximize their growth rate, it is imperative to maintain a high pH, alkalinity and calcium levels, and to keep phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. If conditions are ideal, these corals can also be cultured and grown into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces.

Along with lighting and water quality, ORA coral frags prefer medium to strong, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This is best accomplished with a wave maker and multiple powerheads. ORA coral frags receive a majority of their nutritional requirements from photosynthesis, but will benefit from the addition of zooplankton or foods designed for corals and invertebrates.

These ORA coral frags are attached to a plastic frag plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.

Approximate Purchase Size: 5 individual corals; 1" to 2"
