    THE GREAT CORAL GIVEAWAY — 2012

    Coral #6: Multicolor Lobophyllia

    Description: "This week's coral: Multicolor Lobophyllia. This week's specimen also originates from Australia. This lobo from down under is about 2.5" x 3.5". Note the baby blue color with hints of pink in the interior. Enjoy and good luck!"

    HOW TO ENTER: Simply like this photo or leave a comment before 12 pm PST on Friday, 8/10.

    HOW TO WIN: Winner will be chosen at random. Winner will receive the Multicolor Lobophyllia plus a bottle of Aqua Vision Aquatics Coral Dip Solution (Aqua Vision Aquatics Coral Dip Solution - 1 oz).

    Scientific Name: Lobophyllia sp.
    Care Level: Easy
    Temperament: Semi-aggressive
    Lighting: Medium to High Intensity
    Waterflow: Moderate
    Placement: Bottom to middle of aquarium
    Water Parameters: Temperature: 72-78° F; pH 8.1-8.3; Specific Gravity 1.023-1.025; dKH 8-12; Calcium 400-450ppm; Nitrate >10ppm
    Supplements: Calcium, magnesium, strontium and trace elements
    Family: Mussidae

    The lobed brain coral is a hardy coral that can tolerate a wide range of lighting conditions. They prefer moderate water flow and can be placed just about anywhere in the aquarium as long as they are acclimated. Higher lighting intensities will tend to make their coloration more vibrant. They are available in a wide variety of colors ranging from solid browns, reds, oranges, greens and purples to more exotic dual and tri-color specimens. Relative to other LPS corals, lobophyllia sp. corals have large polyp mouths. Regular feedings of larger pieces of meaty foods, such as mysis shrimp or silversides, will help boost their health and growth. It is best to feed the lobophylia sp. coral at night when they extend their feeding/sweeper tentacles.
