Ultra Green Galaxea Coral
Lighting: Moderate to High
The Galaxea Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral! Its' name, Galaxea, comes from the Greek word galaxaios (milky), describing the polyp's milky-white tips.
It is an aggressive coral in the reef aquarium, and needs adequate space between itself and other corals. Its polyps can extend up to several inches at night and will sting and cause damage to other species of corals that it can reach. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
They will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, T-5s, powerful LEDs and up to the more intense metal halides. The Galaxea corals satisfy the majority of their nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body but will benefit from the addition of foods designed for corals and invertebrates.
