As its name suggests, the Orange fireball sponge has a deep orange body with ball shape that looks brilliant in the water. The orange fireball sponge possesses a peaceful nature and should not be housed with predator species, as they might release toxins which can paralyze the predator. The orange fireball sponge grows up to a size of 5 inches and must not be housed in a tank of less than 20 gallons. Make sure to provide a moderate to high water current, as water movement is crucial for the survival of orange fireball sponge. It is best to keep the Orange fireball sponge in a temperature range of 72-78ø F, pH 8.1-8.4, and specific gravity 1.023-1.025. Also make sure that the area where the Orange fireball sponge resides is not crowded with rocks and corals, as the sponges require good lighting. The orange fireball sponges filter out the detritus and bacteria from the moving water in the tank. We recommend you to provide the sessile sponge with a diet of dissolved organic food along with high quality phytoplanktons, and micro organisms for its continued good health. The Orange fireball sponge is reef safe and does not disturb any invertebrates present in the home tank. The orange fireball sponge should not be exposed to the air, as the air particles get caught in its atria, blocking the path of entry of food. As it is difficult to take care of these critters it has to be grown under the guidance of an expert aquarist.
