SPECIAL-Red Chili Coral Colony (Non Photosynthetic)
This is for a non-photosynthetic Red Chili coral colony, Alcyonium sp.
Size: ~3-4+ inches when fully open and attached to substrate. Colors and shapes vary.
Lighting: not applicable, non photosynthetic
Water flow: moderate to higher water flow
This is a non-photosynthetic coral. We recommend placing it in moderate to higher water flow in an established aquarium. Being nonphosynthetic a mature aquarium is recommended. We recommend feeding it 2-3 times week with phytoplankton.
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.
