The Green Open Brain Coral has fleshy polyps that generally hide its skeleton. It resembles a brain, due to the presence of crevices and ridges. The Green Open 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 Green Open Brain Coral a valuable addition to any reef tank. You need to provide space to the Green Open Brain Coral so that it can spread and flourish itself well in the reef tank. Keep the Green Open Brain Coral away from neighboring corals to avoid the stinging behavior, because it may sting them. Brain Coral is also commonly called as Honeycomb Coral, Pineapple Coral, Moon Coral, Closed Brain Coral, Brain Coral Closed Pineapple, Star Coral and Worm Coral. The ridges present on the coral actually serve as the habitat for other animals to live on. It features sweeper tentacles that extend well beyond its base when open. The Green Open Brain Coral can be aggressive towards other corals and therefore keeping it at a distant place is recommended. It is nocturnal, and extends out its tentacles during the night. The Green Open Brain Coral thrives well in the temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.10-8.40. It is 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 work wonders to the growth of this coral, and hence we advise you to add them.
