It is a relatively fast growing species of small polyp stony (SPS) coral with very delicate, thin branches. Care should be taken in the placement of the coral to protect it from physical damage. The Polyp Green Birdsnest Coral requires both high lighting and intermittent water current to maintain its bright color. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
The Green Birdsnest Coral will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions.
The Purple Polyp Green Birdsnest Coral satisfies the majority of its nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. While it may not require additional food to maintain its health in the reef aquarium, the Green Birdsnest Coral will feed on micro-plankton or foods designed for filter-feeding invertebrates.
The Green Birdsnest Coral is mounted on a small fired ceramic block that can be placed easily and securely in or between the rockwork in the reef aquarium.
