    Going to Work

    I just pipetted the critters into the tank. It looked like they went to work so I think we acclimated and transported well. Thanks for your help. I look forward to the result over the course of the next few weeks. Mike

    83

    This War Horse favia is bright red and green. It is about 1- inch and encrusting on a frag plug. This is growing on a plastic plug which can be cut with scissors.

    Common names for Favia corals are moon coral, green moon coral, brain coral, closed brain coral, and star coral. Favia corals are one of the most prolific coral species in the world.

    Feeding tentacles emerge from the heads which will allow you to feed them items like brine shrimp for faster growth.  Polyp buds can accure which are a form of asexual reproduction in the home reef aquarium. They prefer moderate light but can tolerate lower lighting conditions. High current will keep them from expanding completely.  They are an easier coral to keep which makes the good for the begginner reef aquarist.
