Looking for a hardy and visually appealing coral to add to your reef aquarium? Consider the Trachyphyllia, commonly known as the Trachy Coral!

This coral is known for its distinct tentacle-like structures, which can retract or expand depending on the coral's mood and surrounding conditions. Trachy Corals come in a range of colors, including shades of green, brown, and even pink, making them a beautiful and versatile addition to any aquarium.

When it comes to tank specifications, the Trachy Coral is relatively easy to care for, making it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced reef keepers. Here are some recommended care specifications:

  • Lighting: The Trachy Coral can tolerate a wide range of lighting conditions, but it typically prefers moderate to low lighting. We recommend using LED lights with a spectrum of 400-450 nm and a PAR value of 50-100.

  • Water Flow: The Trachy Coral prefers moderate to low water flow, so aim for a turnover rate of 5-10 times per hour.

  • Water Parameters: The Trachy 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 Trachy Coral obtains most of its nutrition through photosynthesis, it will also benefit from supplemental feedings of planktonic foods, such as phytoplankton or zooplankton.

When it comes to placement in the aquarium, the Trachy Coral prefers to be positioned in areas with low to moderate water flow and moderate to low light levels. It is also important to note that the Trachy Coral can be aggressive towards neighboring corals, so it is best to provide it with plenty of space to grow.

Overall, the Trachy Coral is a beautiful and hardy addition to any reef aquarium. With these care specifications in place, your Trachy Coral will thrive in your aquarium, adding beauty and interest to your underwater world.
