Husbandry

Infos from AIMS:
Characters: Colonies are massive to encrusting. Corallites are angular in shape and have thick walls. Long and short septa generally alternate. Paliform lobes are well developed in colonies from turbid water but may be absent in colonies from exposed habitats.

Similar Species: Goniastrea edwardsi, which has similar skeletal structures but is much smaller. See also Favites pentagona and F. halicora.

Mein Tier fährt nachts Tentakel in der länge von ca. 15cm aus. Aufgepasst Nachbartier.

Leuchted Grün, als hätte sie eine Batterie im allerwärtesten.

Sehr schön & robust was die Wasserwerte betrifft.
