Create a beautiful reef aquarium landscape full of colorful aquacultured corals from Biota. This collection of amazing aquacultured corals includes three easier-to-care-for soft corals diverse in color and form at one great package price. The Biota Premium Aquacultured Soft Coral 3 Pack is perfect for filling empty reef aquarium landscapes with lively movement and architectural shape - a great choice for both novice and advanced reef aquarists!
The Biota Premium Aquacultured Soft Coral 3 Pack includes one (1) Biota Aquacultured Fuzzy Fat Finger Coral (Sinularia sp.), one (1) Biota Aquacultured Mountain Dew Toadstool Coral (Sarcophyton sp.), and one (1) Biota Aquacultured White Polyp Toadstool Coral (Sarcophyton sp.).
Corals included in the Biota Premium Aquacultured Soft Coral 3 Pack will thrive under a variety of lighting conditions achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs, or the more intense metal halide light fixtures. While not as demanding as small polyp stony (SPS) corals, it is still imperative to maintain high water quality for the Biota aquacultured soft corals ensuring proper pH, alkalinity and calcium levels, while keeping phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. Under ideal conditions corals included in the Biota Premium Aquacultured Soft Coral 3 Pack can grow rapidly, allowing dedicated or experienced reef hobbyists to propagate fragments or broken pieces of these corals and grow them into new colonies.
Along with proper lighting and water quality, coral frags included in the Biota Premium Aquacultured Soft Coral 3 Pack will thrive when provided medium to strong, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This can be easily achieved with the addition of powerheads, wavemakers, or water circulation pumps.
The photosynthetic symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within the Biota aquacultured soft corals satisfies the majority of its nutritional requirements. However, the Biota aquacultured soft corals will benefit from supplemental weekly feedings of micro-plankton and other foods designed for filter-feeding invertebrates especially when housed in reef aquariums that do not contain fishes. For continued good health, they will also require the addition of iodine, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
The aquacultured soft corals in this pack are mounted to a natural "rock-like" plug that can be placed easily and securely in or between rockwork in the reef aquarium.
