The Cotton Carnation Coral is commony referred to as the Colony Flower Tree Coral, Scleronephthya Strawberry Coral, or Pink or Orange Cauliflower Coral. The Cotton Carnation Coral closely resembles members of the Dendronephthya genus, so you should not get confused with it. The Cotton Carnation Coral is relatively difficult to maintain due to their special dietary needs, and should only be recommended by an experienced aquarist. Its stalks, branches, and tips tend to have various shades of the same color. This colony is a grouping of several small individual corals attached to a single rock. The Cotton Carnation Coral requires low lighting levels combined with medium to strong water movement. In direct water current it doesn?t open fully, so water flow provided by a power head directed at the glass or nearby rock is ideal. The addition of strontium, iodine, and other trace elements to the water is necessary for its continued good health. Since the Cotton Carnation Coral does not have symbiotic algae, it relies only on the provided food. Therefore, the Cotton Carnation Coral should be given a diet that includes live or frozen baby brine shrimp, daphnia, zooplankton, and other small foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates, in order to survive in the reef aquarium. The Cotton Carnation Coral thrives well in a temperature rage of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4.
