Description

 

We acquired this coral from a local high end coral collector in 2018. The frag grew out well for us over the years. This coral has a bright red ridge separating the polyps. Each polyp has colors of green, yellow and orange.

Favities corals can be semi aggressive of the LPS corals. They do have sweeper tentacles and can sting corals mainly at night so take caution when placing them. Favities will grow encrusting the rock around so leave some space to grow out. For fast growing species, place small pieces of rubble rock around them to grow onto as a way to prune them back.

Dosing: Doc highly recommends automated dosing of Ca, Kh and other elements to provide ultimate stable water chemistry throughout the day. It is important there are no fluctuations especially with Kh/alkalinity. For more information on dosing and products click here. 

Placement recommendations: There are a few good areas to place these corals. Try an area like and edge in front so the coral can encrust onto the reef. Keep a safe distance from other corals so it does not harm or get harmed by other corals. This coral is good to grow in vertical areas where others cannot. Another great location is on an island on the sand up close to the glass for optimal viewing. It will never grow outwards into the glass. 

Attachment: We like to clip off the exposed disk areas. Add a small amount of coral glue to the underside of the disk. Mix up enough two part epoxy to create a small mound and dab it a few times into the glue to get it tacky then press and mold a conical shape. Add a few small daps to the tip of the cone dabbing the glue so it really sticks to the epoxy. Press the coral disk onto the desired location and press the epoxy flat around the disk. Be sure the coral is fully secure, the coral should never fall off the reef.
