The Green Chalice is a green colored coral with a heavy tissue matter over its skeleton. The heavily tissued, fleshy body adds amazing texture, and makes it a beautiful addition to any tank. The Green Chalice is very easy to maintain, therefore it makes a very good choice for a beginner aquarist. Being a hardy species, it can be grown in almost any type of light environment. The Green Chalice grows best with brightest colors under moderate to high light. It features long sweeper tentacles that can sting the neighboring corals, therefore keeping the other corals at a distance is recommended. The Chalice should be placed horizontally in areas of low to medium and water movement. It is known to have both growth of encrusting when placed near aquarium as well as a plating habit growth strategy when housed in an open area. The Green Chalice is nocturnal, and feeds at night. It benefits from small pieces of meaty marine foods, such as baby brine shrimp, Cyclop-eeze, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. Addition supplements of calcium, strontium, and other trace element to the water column is also proved beneficial for its continued good health. The Green Chalice thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4.

This beautiful coral is a pale green with laminar colonies, tubular round corallites.Provide medium lighting and moderate flow.Place this coral in the middle of the reef or on the sand bed.Corals are part of a biological group known as Cnidaria. Most Cnidaria have a mouth,or mouths, that opens into one big body cavity. Due to the lack of a true digestivesystem, this cavity acts in its place and after the food is broken down thenutrients are then sent through the rest of the body as food. There is also noexcretory system; therefore the waste is sent back through the mouth or secretedinto the surrounding water.Tentacles of varying size will usually surround the mouth of Cnidaria. Most Cnidariahave tentacles with stinging cells that can shoot tiny poison darts into their preyor can even be used as a defense mechanism. Some corals lack tentacles and insteadcover themselves with a thin layer of mucus and use that to collect bacteria andplankton as food. Some corals even use both of these methods. Cnidaria can either bean individual animal or members of a complex colony. These "Colony Corals" share thefood and nutrients taken in by each individual.Corals have tiny living organisms that actually live in their tissue. These arecalled zooxanthellae and they are the reason why such strong lighting is needed inthe saltwater aquarium. These algae-like creatures provide the coral with oxygen andother nutrients that are produced during photosynthesis. During this process, thezooxanthellae take up carbon dioxide and provide nutrients to the coral.Corals can use two different types of defense mechanisms. One of which is a sweepertentacle wherein the coral reaches its tentacles out to try to damage another coralwith nematocysts. The other is when the coral releases a minute amount of toxin intothe water to poison another coral within certain proximity. Most "Hard Corals"should not be placed within reach of another coral.
