The Favia Brain Coral has fleshy polyps that completely hide its skeleton. It resembles a human brain, due to the presence of crevices and ridges. The Favia Brain Coral becomes a popular choice amongst the beginner aquarists. Due to its hardy skeleton, it is very easy to maintain and that makes the Favia Brain Coral a valuable addition to any reef tank. You need to provide space to the Favia Brain Coral so that it can spread and flourish well in the reef tank. Keep the Favia Brain Coral away from neighboring corals to avoid the stinging behavior. The Faiva Brain Coral is also commonly called: 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. It features sweeper tentacles that extend well beyond its base when open. The Favia Brain Coral can be aggressive towards other corals and therefore keeping it at distant place is recommended. It is nocturnal, and extends out its tentacles during the night. The Favia Brain Coral thrives 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.ÿAdditional traces of calcium and strontium works wonders to the growth of this coral, and hence it is advisable to add. You should be vigilant towards the over-growth of algae as it might cause damage to this coral.
