Scientific Name: Dendronephthya sp.
Approximate Arrival Size: Small - 2" to 3", Medium - 3" to 4.5", Large - 4.5" to 6"
 

Carnation Coral, Dendronephthya sp., adds a blushing red/orange/pink to the shadows of a well-lit aquarium or acts as a showpiece to an aquarium of moderate lighting. This coral is great for experienced reef keepers willing to attend to its particular light, water flow, and feeding needs. Carnation Coral will not tolerate bright, direct lighting, so it is often placed in the shadows or in cave entrances in a highly-lit aquarium. It does, however, require a medium to high water flow, which can be tricky, given its preferred growing location in the shadows. Because the Carnation Coral does not create its own food algae, it must be provided with a great quantity of natural algal microverts, or supplemented with frequent, consistent feedings with products such as Kent PhytoPlex, Two Little Fishes PhytoPlan, or Two Little Fishes Marine Snow. The constant need for these foods can tend to diminish water condition, thus the recommendation for advanced aquarists. For the aquarist willing to invest a little extra time, this coral can be a true eye-catcher.

Typically ships growing from a piece of Live Rock.
