    Common names: lobed braincoral, open brain coral

    Difficulty Level: Trachyphyllia brains are generally very tolerant of most conditions, but stable alkalinity is important.

    Feeding: Trachyphyllias have a very strong prey capture ability. They may be fed any meaty foods including pellets.

    Lighting (Level 4 to 7): These corals prefer moderate lighting, but may be adapted to higher. Be sure to acclimate them when moving to higher light.

    Water flow: Moderate to stronger water flow is ideal.

    Placement: Trachyphyllia brains must be placed on the sand. They are aggressive corals with long sweeper tentacles, so be sure to leave ample space around them.

    General: Stable alkalinity is a must with these corals and calcium above 400 is best to promote growth.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
