With its beautiful polyps, the Australian Duncanopsammia adds a display of color in the home aquarium. The Australian Duncanopsammia boasts vibrant purple tentacles, which retracts when disturbed. It is commonly referred to as the Duncan Corals, Duncans Corals, Duncan?s Corals, Whisker Corals, Aussie Corals, Aussie Duncans, Daisy Corals. The Australian Duncanopsammia readily propagates and forms a continuous mat of tentacles. It is better to place the Australian Duncanopsammia in low current areas along with low to moderate light, so that it flourishes well in the tank. The Australian Duncanopsammia is peaceful in nature and can be kept safely with other non-aggressive corals. Since it grows quickly, the Australian Duncanopsammia needs ample space around it, so that it grows freely without any inhibition. The Australian Duncanopsammia receives its nutrition through photosynthesis with the help of zooxanthellae that dwells inside its tissue. Also, target feedings of meaty marine foods such as enriched Mysis and brine shrimp have also proved to be beneficial for its continued good health. Make sure to add calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water column, so that its presence will aid in its growth. The Australian Duncanopsammia thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Australian Duncanopsammia needs moderate care and is good choice for a moderate aquarist but not novice aquarist.
