berghias are great!!

Received my Berghia order yesterday. They were very active and ready to go. I put an aiptasia in the bag and they promptly ate it. I got up this morning and found several more aiptasia already gone. So far so good!

Aquacultured Bright Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Coral - 1 Inch

43

Our pink eye Cyphastrea coral is 1 inch and encrusting on a coral frag plug. This coral has bright pink eyes and blue base tissue. The coral has a nice color for the money and grows fairly quickly.

Cyphastrea sp. are usually massive or hemisherical. They come in striking colors, with the polyps usually of contrasting colors like pink eyes on a blue background or green eyes on an orange background.  These are in the Faviidae family of corals, which are generally considered to be LPS (large polyped stony) corals, but many hobbyists classify Cyphastrea spp. as SPS (small polyped stoney) corals due to the size of the polyps.

Meteor shower corals prefer to be located near the bottom of the aquarium in low to moderate lighting. This is one of the easier stony corals to keep.

Please see this article for more information about the Faviidae family of corals.

All the Berghia arrived in a good shape, they are already eating. Thank you very much for the extra one! You did a great job on this shipment. The packing was VERY good. I will make sure to recommend you when someone has an aiptasia problem.
