Fascination Favia is a quick grower with incredible color. The colors vary due to tank conditions with the typical coloration consisting of a bright tangerine/orange and emerald green that mixes throughout the colony and solid red polyps to set it off.
Favia Coral, which grows in colonies, generally plants itself at either the bottom or middle of a reef or rock bed. This type of coral is widespread throughout both the Atlantic Ocean and the Indo-Pacific Ocean.
How to Care for Favia Coral
The care level required to keep a healthy Favia Coral is minimal. This easy level of care is due to the fact that the Favia Coral does not have any real special requirements and can very easily adapt to conditions with would not be considered “perfect”, i.e. ideal water temperature, lighting, etc.
However, even though it is not absolutely essential for their survival, the Favia Coral does prefer a moderate level of lighting, meaning approximately 3-4 watts of light per gallon of water in the tank. This should also be achieved through a combination of natural and fluorescent light. Again, too, the Favia Coral likes placement at the bottom or middle of the tank.
Favia Coral Temperament
The Favia Coral is considered to have an aggressive temperament towards other species. For instance, they have long sweeper tentacles that they expand at night. These tentacles could sting any nearby tank neighbors and cause considerable physical and chemical damage.
In order to avoid harm to other species in the tank, owners need to be sure to include plenty of space between Favia Coral and other corals. Again, their tentacles also expand, so space should also be allotted for the few extra inches
Ideal Water Conditions
Water temperature should be between 72 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit. The pH level of the tank should be about 8.1 to 8.4. Lastly, current flow show be medium. Although, again, the Favia Coral is adaptable so there is some leeway to these conditions.
Favia Coral Diet
While a majority of coral species are able to get nutrition from photosynthesis, algae, or microbes in the tank, the Favia Coral should also receive meaty food as well. They should be fed either micro-plankton or brine shrimp twice per week. These feedings should occur in the evening, when the tentacles are visible.
Owners may also add some things to the tank, such as calcium, magnesium, strontium, and other trace elements, for added nutrition.
