The Elegance Coral is one of the most beautiful corals available to the reef aquarists. It is somewhat hardy and is resistant to many diseases, and that makes the coral a very good choice for the intermediate aquarists. The Elegance Coral is also considered a durable species for any aquarium. It looks similar to an anemone, and possesses tentacles which only extend during the day time. The Elegance Coral is named aptly, due to its tentacles flowing elegantly in the water. It expels out the waste products, by withdrawing its tentacles and inflating the whole body, but it doesn?t need any concern for that. But, if it continues to be in such an inflated position, then the water quality should be investigated, and verify that nothing is attacking the coral. The Elegance Coral should be placed in moderate to strong lighting area, and low to moderate water flow to wave its tentacles. It thrives well in a temperature range of 75-84 degrees Fahrenheit, therefore the temperature should be regulated properly for the Elegance Coral to grow well in the tank. It is highly aggressive and features fairly powerful sting that can expand greatly. Therefore we suggest you to keep the Elegance Coral in a plenty of space and at a far away distance from other neighboring corals. It is photosynthetic and requires no direct feeding, but an occasional feeding of shrimp or other meaty food up to once a week is appreciated. For its skeletal development, the supplements of calcium have been proved beneficial. The Elegance Coral can be placed in the bottom of the tank with the cone base embedded in the substrate.
|Beautiful. I had one before (bought elsewhere) that started dying after a week. Indo-elegance are known for that. This one arrived looking very healthy with great color (blue tips!) . After a day to settle I tried to feed it with little to no response. I did a lot of research since the last one I purchased and decided to take early action. I treated the whole tank (75g) with Pimafix and Malefix at recommended dose. - I am in no way affiliated with whoever makes this stuff. Everything was pissed at first, but nothing died and some things look better. Fish look great. Crabs/shrimp/snails are fine. After 6 days of treatment the elegance (named Frilly Taco by the wife) looks great and is expanding fully. It actually stung a coral it had been brushing up against the whole time which is sad, but a good sign as the nemosites are the first thing to go when they're sick. I fed each of its 3 mouths a piece of scallop and it took it right away. It may not have been sick at all but I didn't want to risk losing this beauty. I wanted to share this with anyone having second thoughts about the infamous Indo-elegance. I hope to have this guy for years.|
