The Orange Ball Sponge flaunts beautiful stunning color into the aquarium. It requires moderate light and moderate water movement in the tank. The Orange Ball Sponge features small holes called ?pores? which are used to suck in water and pump it through the interior of the sponge. Since the water is filtered through the sponge, its oxygen and food are removed. The Orange Ball Sponge requires some very special care in order to survive in the home aquarium. It doesn?t have any kind of organ or tissue and are simple organisms. The Orange Ball Sponge is non-aggressive and peaceful, and get along with other tank mates in a quite healthy way. The Orange Ball Sponge adds a dramatic splash of Orange color in to your aquarium. It should never be exposed to the open air as the air can block the channel path and impedes the nutrition process causing it to die eventually. It can be kept in such a place where it can receive moderate to strong water flow so that it receives the dissolved organic foods. Since the Orange Ball Sponge is a filter feeder, it can very much take its food from the water column. The Orange Ball Sponge does well with the additional feeding of liquid plankton and other dissolved organic foods. It is non-aggressive and reef compatible, which makes the Orange Ball Sponge safe to keep with other tank inhabitants. It mostly inhabits cliffs and rock overhangs, therefore keeping live rocks or caves are required to keep for the Orange Ball Sponge to get shade. The shady areas prevent the algal growth on the body surface of the Orange Ball Sponge. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and with pH of 8.10. The Orange Ball Sponge breeds asexually in the marine aquarium by the means by fragmentation. It propagates very easily by just placing the fragment on the substrate in the reef tank.
