Green Cup

The Turbinaria Corals are large polyp stony (LPS) corals. Depending upon the species, they are referred to as a Cup, Pagoda, Turban, Vase, or Scroll Corals. The genus name, Turbinaria, is derived from the Greek word turbinatus (cone-shaped) because it usually grows in a conical or cup shape while living on the reef. It may also be found in the form of cups, ruffled ridges, plates, vases, or scrolls. It may grow horizontally or vertically. Although the Turbinaria Corals may be bright yellow, green, brown, gray, or cream, this particular specimen is green. A number of species may extend their polyps during the day or night while in an aquarium.

Turbinaria sp. vary in the amount of care they require. Those that are highly convoluted or thin plates are the most difficult to care for. Others, like this one, make excellent candidates for the novice reef aquarist. It is a peaceful reef inhabitant and does not bother other corals that are placed in close proximity to it. However, it should still be provided with ample space away from other corals because it does grow quickly. It will require moderate lighting combined with moderate water movement within the aquarium. For its continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

It will benefit from additional food in the form of brine shrimp or plankton.

Cyphastrea

There’s nothing better than finding a hot coral that pops in your tank, grows fast and is easy to keep.  The Bizarro Cyphastrea is exactly that.  This gorgeous, encrusting coral has a royal blue base with yellow, red centered polyps that resemble small flowers.  It’s best kept in low light, low flow conditions and spreads quickly.

Water Quality and Parameters

Cyphastrea are very hearty and will thrive even if your water parameters aren’t perfect.  Dose properly with calcium, alkalinity and magnesium to maximize growth, and believe me, they will grow fast!  Keep your salinity, nitrate and Ph within the normal safe zones to keep this gorgeous coral healthy.

Best Lighting

Cyphastrea love lower light conditions whether you run LED’s or T5’s. All of our Cyphastrea have done well, you will have to make adjustments based on your own tank and lighting.  Start your Bizarro Cyphastrea very low in the tank and move it up over time
