The Maze Brain Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) that is often referred to as a Brain Coral, Closed Brain Coral, Ridge Coral, Worm Coral, and Maze Brain Coral. It has fleshy polyps that hide its calcareous skeleton, and is found in many shades of red, green, orange, gray, or brown. The Maze Brain Coral resembles a brain, due to the presence of crevices and ridges. Due to its hardy nature, it is very easy to maintain and that makes the Maze Brain Coral a popular choice amongst the beginner aquarists and expert aquarist, as well as a valuable addition to any reef tank. Keep the Maze Brain Coral in a moderately strong current that does not blast the coral. It should be kept away from neighboring corals to avoid the stinging behavior, because it may sting them. The Maze 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. It grows very quickly and consumes lots of calcium present in the aquarium for its growth. Therefore, additional traces of calcium and strontium work wonders to the growth of this coral, and hence we advice you to add it. The Maze 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. The Maze Brain Coral is photosynthetic in nature and manufactures food and energy using the zooxanthellae that dwells inside its tissue. It is very easy to grow and propagate in a tank, and therefore makes a very good addition to any tank.
