The Pagoda Coral is a large polyp stony coral, which grows in a conical or cup shape, and are commonly referred as pagoda cup, turban, vase, or scroll corals. It can grow horizontally as well as vertically, and a number of species may extend its polyps during the day or night while thriving in the aquarium. The Pagoda Coral is quite easy to care for and this makes it a very good choice for a beginner aquarist. It is considered a peaceful reef inhabitant, which does not bother corals that are placed in close proximity to it. The Pagoda Coral requires moderate lighting combined with moderate water movement within the aquarium. Also, the addition of calcium, strontium, and other traces elements also benefits the growth of this beautiful species in the tank. The Pagoda Coral should be kept in a tank not less than 20 gallon. It undergoes photosynthesis, and manufactures food using the zooxanthellae that dwells inside its tissue. The Pagoda Coral also directly absorbs some nutrients from the water and feeds on micro zooplankton. Those Pagoda Coral with highly convoluted or thin plates are the most difficult to care for. It grows quickly and propagates easily in the tank, which makes it a valuable addition to any reef tank. The Pagoda Coral requires medium light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium.

Healthy. After a week it has 3-4 new polyps on each of the cut sides. Good size frag.
