The Orange Chalice, like many other echinophyllia species, is a bright and eye catching coral, with a orange purple dot stripe base, green spots and patches of yellow hues. This species has been known to be quite easy to grow under proper conditions.They prefer to be placed horizontally on rocks or sand, and do not require high lighting. Most like to grow them under 100 par. Place in medium flow, where it will be provided nutrients and trace elements. Echinophellias benefit from small pieces of meaty marine food, such as baby brine shrimp, cyclops, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. In the ocean they are rare.
