The Distichopora Coral, Distichopora sp. , also known as the Stylaster Coral or Lace Coral is often mistaken for a SPS due to its hard exoskeleton, but is actually classified as a Hydrocoral. Unlike Fire Corals, which are also Hydrocorals, most species will not sting other corals or tank mates in your home aquarium. Its body is made up of calcium carbonate, and forms beautiful ornate tree-like structures, with all the flattened, blunt-ended branches growing in one plane. Its tiny clear polyps extend their tentacles at night to feed on plankton in the water column. Its color also varies and may be greenish, violet, red, orange, yellow, pink, yellowish-brown or pale brown.
We recommend this Coral to be cared for by expert aquarist and should only be added to well-established tanks. Low lighting and a medium to strong water flow is recommended, as well as the addition of calcium, iodine, strontium, and other trace elements to the water to help this Coral truly thrive. It is best placed under overhangs, which will provide an ideal environment. This Coral will do best in a temperature range of 72-78° F and a pH level of 8.1-8.4.
