  • Date Added: 10/22/2010
  • Tank: Cardiff
  • Status: Inactive 12/1/2011
  • Purchased at: FAOIS
  • Cost: $13.00
  • Coloration: Green body with purple/red growth tips
  • Lighting: 250w MH 14000K Phoenix
  • Description: The Strawberry Shortcake Acropora, a Small Polyp Stony (SPS) coral, has purple/red growth tips on a green body with minimal polyp extension.
  • More Info: Temporary picture from web until my frag gets large enough or I get a better lens to take a good picture.
  • Light and Flow: For optimum coloration, it should be given a medium to high light levels such as T5 or metal halide lighting combined with medium to strong intermittent water current within the aquarium.
  • Supplements: It will require maintaining stable levels of calcium, magnesium, pH, alkalinity, and other trace elements as you would with other types of SPS corals. It is essential for SPS health to keep nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates near undetectable levels.
  • Feeding: While it does not require additional food to maintain its health, it will feed on micro-plankton and foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.
