The Green Blasto Coral, or Blastomussa merleti, is a stunning and unique coral that is sure to make a statement in your aquarium. Its bright green coloration and distinctive polyp shape make it a standout addition to any tank, and it is sure to draw the eye of any observer.

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

To care for your Green Blasto Coral, 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 Green Blasto Coral 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: While the Green Blasto Coral obtains most of its nutrition through photosynthesis, it will also benefit from supplemental feedings of meaty foods, such as mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, or plankton.

In terms of placement in the aquarium, the Green Blasto Coral prefers to be positioned in areas with moderate water flow, where it can extend its polyps and capture passing planktonic food. It can also tolerate moderate to high light levels, but it appreciates being positioned in the lower to mid-levels of the tank.

With these tank specifications in place, your Green Blasto Coral 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 a Green Blasto Coral to your aquarium today and enjoy the beauty and hardiness of this amazing coral!
