    Difficulty Level: Hydnophora is one of the easier SPS corals with minimal chemical needs other than stability and higher light.

    Feeding: Hydno will eat small particulate meat based foods such as rotifers or cyclopeze.

    Lighting: Higher lighting is a must as with most SPS corals.

    Waterflow: Strong random current will suite hydnophora in keeping its flesh clear of detritus and other debris.

    Placement: Hydno is an aggressive SPS coral, so keep it away from other more sensitive species.

    General: Hydnophora comes in many different growth forms, but with the same super-fluorescent coloration on most, they are easy to pick out[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
