The Purple Tip Frogspawn Coral gets its name from its unique polyps, which resemble a mass of frog eggs. This unique and attractive LPS coral is great for beginners.
It requires moderate water currents and moderate to high reef lighting for proper health. It is important that proper calcium and alkalinity levels are maintained.
Use of Kalkwasser Mix or a calcium reactor will be of great benefit.

Place the Frogspawn Coral on an exposed rock along the bottom two-thirds of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements. It expands to twice its normal size during the evenings, and its long sweeper tentacles can sting nearby corals. Leave 4”-5” between it and other corals. Be careful to place it so that only the skeleton comes in contact with the live rock.

Wächst bei mir, mann kann schon von wuchern Sprechen, seit 6 Monaten. Leichte wechselnde Strömung, mittlere Beleuchtung.

Die Euphyllia paradivisa ist eine schöne Koralle.
Sie steht bei mir im Schatten und hat eine leichte Strömung!!
In meinen Augen ist sie ein absolutes Anfängertier!!!

bei halbwegs guten wasserwerten sehr gut zu halten. nicht sehr anspruchsvoll an licht, darf aber nicht zuviel strömung bekommen, nur indirekt - dann ist sie voll geöffnet.
tip: die polypenskelette werden unten oft von einsiedlern angefressen, oft bricht sie dann ab. abhilfe: aus z.b. reef construct einen flachen streifen (wie einen kaugummi) formen und um den stamm drücken - das hält und gibt stabilität.
