Acanthastrea and Micromussa Coral For Sale

This guide provides essential insights into caring for Acanthastrea and Micromussa corals, making them attractive, low-maintenance choices for saltwater aquarium enthusiasts. Known for their durability and ease of care, these corals are suitable for both novice and experienced aquarists. We focus on creating the right conditions for these corals to flourish.

A stable marine environment with specific water parameters is vital for the health of Acanthastrea and Micromussa corals. Key parameters include a specific gravity of 1.025 to 1.026, temperature range of 76°F to 82°F, pH levels from 8.1 to 8.4, alkalinity between 8 and 12 dKH, calcium at 400 to 450 ppm, and magnesium at 1350 to 1450 ppm. Moderate lighting and low to moderate water flow are preferred, mimicking their natural habitats and promoting polyp expansion without causing stress.

Placement is crucial, with Acanthastrea corals fitting best at the tank’s bottom to mid-levels, and Micromussa corals placed lower to enjoy reduced light intensity. This positioning helps maintain their vibrant colors and prevents bleaching.

Feeding them a diet rich in meaty foods like mysis shrimp enhances their growth and coloration. Acanthastrea corals benefit from being fed several times a week at night, while Micromussa corals, being slower to feed, need longer access to food.

Regular maintenance, including water changes and monitoring of water parameters, is necessary to remove toxins and maintain ideal conditions. Address any signs of distress, such as tissue recession or lack of polyp extension, by checking and adjusting water quality and lighting.

Caring for these corals offers a rewarding journey, transforming your aquarium into a vibrant marine display. This guide serves as a foundation, but continued care and observation will ensure your corals’ health and growth.
