Sale price Price $49.99 Regular price $49.99

This is for a single ORA Aquacultured Purple Stylophora Coral, Stylophora sp. This coral was grown by ORA farms. 

Size: ~1.5-2.5 inches

Lighting: moderate to high light

Water flow: moderate to higher water flow

The ORA Purple Stylo is a thinner and more open branching variety than other ORA corals in the Stylophora genus. This fast growing Stylo has intense purple to blue polyps on a tan to pink background. Like other Stylophora, this coral has extreme polyp extension giving it a bushy appearance.

This coral variety is considered an SPS (small polyp stony) coral. SPS corals require high water quality, more intense lighting generally and can be less forgiving to adverse conditions compared to soft and LPS (large polyp stony) coral varieties. 

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.
