Once the Galaxea Coral gets acclimatized into the tank, it becomes very easy to care for and that makes it a very good choice for a beginner aquarist. It grows and propagates easily if your aquarium meets its specifications. The Galaxea Coral features sweeper tentacles which measures six to seven inches on extension. It thrives well in a temperature range of 74-81 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.10-8.40. The Galaxea Coral needs moderate to strong water current along with moderate to high intensity lighting in the marine aquarium. It is photosynthetic in nature and derives energy and nutrition using the zooxanthellae that dwells inside its tissue. Apart from this, the Galaxea Coral can also be fed with meaty bits of fish, mysis shrimps and brine shrimps for its continued health. It breeds easily and rapidly in the aquarium and is therefore makes a great addition to any tank. The Galaxea Coral requires a moderate care, and features stinging tentacles that can stings anything it touches. Therefore, keeping other neighboring corals at a distance is recommended. Also, the Galaxea Coral is a good choice only for experienced aquarists and since it features stinging tentacles, it is considered semi aggressive towards other.
