ich habe in meinen Becken schon seit Jahren diese Koralle.Vom Mutterstock habe einzelne Fragemente erhalten.
Sie ist unproblematisch.Sie wächst selbst unter kräftigem LED-Licht in der oberen Region.Man sollte ihr Zeit bei der Lichtanpassung geben. Die Grundfarbe mener Koralle ist ein kräftiges Türkis ,die Mundöffnungen weiß, was bei den Ablegern die weniger Licht erhalten dunkler und blasser ist.Eine wunderschöne Koralle .

ich hatte 2 Fragmente erworben. Eines davon habe ich in starkem Licht, das andere in schwachem Licht platziert. Das Fragment im starken Licht ist gestorben, das im schwachen licht wächst sehr gut und hat eine intensiv grün fluoreszierende Farbe angenommen. Die Mundöffnungen sind hellblau.
Das Fragment steht sogar teilweise abgeschattet.
