The Pink Scleronephthya is commonly referred as the Red Flower Tree Coral, or Pink or Orange Cauliflower Coral because of its bizarre structure that resembles the branches of a tree or cauliflower. It is moderately difficult to maintain in the reef aquarium and should be housed in an established reef aquarium by the experienced marine aquarist. The Pink Scleronephthya is normally shipped by attaching it to a small piece of live rock or rubble. The Pink Scleronephthya requires low lighting levels combined with medium to string indirect water movement. Generally in the presence of direct water current, the Pink Scleronephthya will not open fully, so water flow directed at the glass or nearby rock is ideal. Since it doesn?t contain any symbiotic algae, the Pink Scleronephthya should be fed with live baby brine shrimp, microplankton, and other small foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. Also, the addition of trace elements like strontium, iodine, and other trace elements to water is essential for its continued good health. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4. It is very peaceful and does not bother any tank inhabitants, and that makes it a great addition to a reef tank.
