The Brain Coral has fleshy polyps that generally hide its skeleton. It resembles a brain, due to the presence of crevices and ridges. The Brain Coral becomes a popular choice amongst beginner aquarists. Due to its hardy skeleton, it is very easy to maintain and that makes the Brain Coral a valuable addition to any reef tank. You need to provide space to the Brain Coral so that it can spread its fleshy body in the reef tank. Keep the Brain Coral away from neighboring corals to avoid their stinging behavior. The Brain Coral is also commonly called the Honeycomb Coral, Pineapple Coral, Moon Coral, Star Coral and Worm Coral. The ridges present on the coral actually serve as the habitat for other animals to live. The Favia Brain Coral features sweeper tentacles that extend well beyond its base when open. The Brain Coral can be aggressive towards other corals and therefore keeping it at a distance is recommended. It is nocturnal, and extends out its tentacles during the night. The Brain Coral thrives well in temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.10-8.40. It is a carnivore in nature and filter feeding at least twice per week is recommended. The food may include small marine invertebrates, Mysis Shrimp, meaty bits, zooplankton and phytoplankton for its growth and development.˙Additional traces of calcium and strontium aid in the growth of this coral, and a comprehensive diet is advisable to add. You should be vigilant towards the over-growth of algae as it might cause damage or even death to this coral.
