The Candy Cane Frag - Single Head features branching individual stalk skeletons along with bright colored tissues at their tips. These branches goes upward from its central base forming ?trumpet? like structures, thus it is named as Trumpet Coral. It is very easy to find in any local fish store, and comes in hues of green, blue/purple and tan. The The Candy Cane Frag - Single Head features branching individual stalk skeletons along with bright colored tissues at their tips. These branches goes upward from its central base forming ?trumpet? like structures, thus it is named as Trumpet Coral. It is very easy to find in any local fish store, and comes in hues of green, blue/purple and tan. The Candy Cane Frag is also considered as Bullseye Coral or Brain coral. It does not require a special place in your fish tank, and can do very well in medium light with moderate water movement. The Candy Cane Frag bears short sweeper tentacles that lack the ability to sting nearby corals. The best way is to keep it at the bottom of the tank. The Candy Cane Frag is mostly present in colonies and share each other?s food and nutrients. They have tiny living organisms in their tissue which are called as Zooxanthellae. This is the reason why there is need of strong lighting in an aquarium where these corals are the inhabitants. These Zooxanthellae undergo photosynthesis and provide oxygen and other nutrients produced during the photosynthesis to the coral. The Candy Cane Frag has mainly two different types of defense mechanism. One is sweeper tentacles where it reaches out to damage another coral with nematocysts. Another is when the coral releases the toxin in to the water. Although the Candy Cane Frag is photosynthetic, it is still beneficial to have an addition of brine shrimp, microplankton, phytoplankton, and other filter feeding foods. It should be seen at night, as it puts out small fiber optic like polyps that flows in the current which looks prettier and amazing. Note: It is recommended to allow ample time for the frag to heal. You can do this by placing on a frag rack prior to placement for a couple of weeks. Once the coral is showing good health, you can then place your frag in the rockwork.
