The Orange Pavona Frag, or Pavona cactus, is a stunning coral that is sure to catch the eye of any observer. Its bright orange coloration and distinctive branching pattern make it a standout addition to any tank, and it is sure to add interest and variety to your reef.

But this coral is not just a pretty face - it is also relatively hardy and easy to care for, making it an excellent choice for both experienced and novice reef keepers.

To care for your Orange Pavona Frag, we recommend the following tank specifications:

  • Lighting: This coral prefers moderate to high lighting conditions, so we recommend using LED lights with a spectrum of 400-450 nm and a PAR value of 100-200.

  • Water Flow: The Orange Pavona Frag thrives in moderate to strong water flow, so aim for a turnover rate of 10-20 times per hour.

  • Water Parameters: This coral prefers stable water conditions, with a temperature range of 75-80°F, a pH range of 8.1-8.4, and a salinity range of 1.025-1.026.

  • Feeding: The Orange Pavona Frag obtains most of its nutrition through photosynthesis, but it will also benefit from supplemental feedings of planktonic foods, such as phytoplankton or zooplankton.

In terms of placement in the aquarium, the Orange Pavona Frag prefers to be positioned in areas with moderate to strong water flow, where it can capture passing planktonic food. It can also tolerate moderate to high light levels, but it appreciates being positioned in the mid to upper levels of the tank.

With these tank specifications in place, your Orange Pavona Frag will be a thriving and healthy addition to your reef tank. And not only will it add beauty to your aquarium, but it will also contribute to the overall health of your system by filtering the water and providing shelter for other reef inhabitants.

So why wait? Add an Orange Pavona Frag to your aquarium today and enjoy the beauty and hardiness of this amazing coral!
