Cultured Encrusting Smoldering Stylo
This is for a single Cultured Encrusting Smoldering Stylo sp. stony coral frag
Size: ~1-1.5 inches
Lighting: low to moderate light
Water flow: moderate to higher water flow
This is an encrusting stony coral. It has a darker base with nicely contrasting orange polyps when out. It has a fuzzy appearance when open. It is a moderately fast grower and easy to keep stony coral.
When you first get them they can take a few days to a week or so to open up. Give them a good amount of water flow. This is normal and expected.
It is important to give corals their own space in the aquarium. We recommend giving them at least 2-3+ inches of their own space so they do not sting or irritate other corals. This will also give them room to grow in the aquarium.
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.
