Crawling all Over the Place

Berghia arrived safely and healthy this morning, all three seem to be doing great, crawling all over the place at first. I see what you mean about them liking the creases in the plastic shipping bag. Hope to do business again. Shawn

Aquacultured Bright Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Coral - 2-11-f

43

Our pink eye Cyphastrea coral is .75 inches and 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.
