SPECIAL-Australian Black Sun Coral -Tubastrea sp (Colony)
This is for a single WYSIWYG Black Sun Coral-Tubastrea sp. Colony.
Size: ~2.5-3.5+ inches
This is a non photosynthetic stony coral. When fed, they have black polyps that come out. The common name for this coral is "Black Sun Coral". Color can be black but can also be very dark green or black with a hint of green. Coloration can vary. We recommend feeding them at least several times a week a variety of coral foods which can be pellets, frozen Mysis shrimp, ect. They do not have a strong sting and can be kept with our large species of captive bred seahorses including H. erectus. We recommend keeping them on the rock work in an area with a good amount of water flow. Give them their own space with at least a few inches around them so they are not touching other corals. These are stunning and a lot of fun to keep.
This coral variety is peaceful and considered safe with our larger species (not Dwarf seahorses) of seahorses.
Like our captive bred seahorses, we recommend using RODI water when mixing your saltwater. Corals can be sensitive to improper water quality. We recommend the same water parameters we do for our captive bred seahorses and fish.

Please note: Coral color and appearance varies. Differences in light, glass, water parameters, and many other factors can influence how a coral appears so it may appear different in your aquarium. Many coral species will "close up" during shipping and can take a day or up to a week or more to open. This is normal and expected when you receive them.
