Sporting neon green eyes and green edges that fade into the perfectly contrasting purple, this chalice has a very unique "toxic" look to it which we love!
Sold as 1/2"-1" Frags
Scientific Name: Echinophyllia aspera
Common Names: Chalice Coral
Care Level: Moderate - Hard
Origin / Habitat: Australia, Tonga
Temperament / Behavior: During the evenings, its sweeper tentacles can extend up to six inches beyond its base into the reef aquarium surroundings. It will sting other neighboring corals in the reef aquarium, therefore, it is best to leave plenty of room between itself and other types of corals. It is moderately difficult to maintain as it prefers pristine water quality, but it is a popular coral that will thrive under the proper conditions.
Food: The Chalice Coral feeds mostly at night. Though feeding is not necessary, it benefits from small pieces of meaty marine food, such as baby brine shrimp, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.
Light: Chalice corals require moderate to low lighting
Water Movement: These corals prefer medium flow
