Bright Red Spiny Encrusting Sponge

Sale price Price $39.99 Regular price

This is for a single Bright Red Spiny Encrusting Sponge, Diplastrella megastellata.

Size: ~2-5+ inches

This is considered an encrusting species and is bright red with spiny shape. They are filter feeding and you want to keep them completely submerged at all times. You do not want to take these out of the water. When placing them into the aquarium you will want to open the bag under water to release the sponge into the aquarium. We recommend placing them on the rock work. These do best in an established aquarium. You do not want algae to grow on them so putting them in a higher flow and shaded area may be best placement. This sponge varieties is safe to keep with our captive bred seahorses.
