The Streaks Mushroom Coral looks incredible in a reef tank. Its brightness and vibrancy of colors is absolutely stunning and outstanding, and must be seen under actinic lighting when its fluorescence property enhances its beauty. The Streaks Mushroom Coral is very easy to care for and maintain, which makes it a good choice for any level of tank. The Streaks Mushroom Coral grows and propagates quite easily in an aquarium, which makes it a very good choice for novice aquarists. It is available either in multiples or singly that are attached to small pieces of rocks. The Streaks Mushroom Coral is semi aggressive in nature as compared to other marine aquarium invertebrates. It is recommended to keep the Streaks Mushroom Coral away from other corals just to avoid the aggressive behavior in the aquarium. It needs low water flow and moderate illumination for its growth and development. The Streaks Mushroom Coral can be placed anywhere in your marine aquarium. Often, you will find them closed when you introduce it into the tank. Once the Streaks Mushroom Coral gets acclimated to the environment, it will open up within a weeks time. If there is bright light in the aquarium, the Streaks Mushroom Coral has to be kept at the bottom of the reef tank. The photosynthesis provides the major nutrition to the Streaks Mushroom Coral and, additional feeding is not necessary. But it has to be taken care that the currents should be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements for its continued growth. The Streaks Mushroom Coral undergoes photosynthesis with the help of the entrapped symbiotic algae, zooxanthellae. This alga manufactures food and provides nutrition to the coral using the light energy. The Streaks Mushroom Coral propagates easily in captivity, simply by splitting, thus making a good specimen for the tank.
