Indo Multicolor Acropora
To maximize the growth rate of your Acropora Coral, it is imperative to maintain a high pH, alkalinity and calcium levels, and to keep phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. If conditions are ideal, it can also be cultured and grown into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces.
In addition to high lighting condition and near pristine water quality, the Acropora Coral prefers strong, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This is best accomplished with a wavemaker and multiple powerheads. For continued good health, the Acropora Coral requires the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, magnesium and trace elements.
The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within the Acropora Coral supplies the coral a majority of its nutrition. However, it will benefit from the addition of various types of phyto and zooplankton.
