Once established, the Blastomussa Coral is moderately hardy, especially in an established reef aquarium. It does best in areas with low water flow and moderate light levels. It has no sweeper tentacles and is generally peaceful. Therefore, it may be placed near other peaceful corals or invertebrates.

Lighting

Be sure to have proper water movement and lighting. Provide moderate lighting and a low to moderate water flow for the best health. Provide shade when using metal halides, since the Blasto Coral will not fully open under lighting that is too strong.

Feeding

The Blastomussa genus, like other LPS corals, have developed several feeding strategies. Through a symbiotic relationship with a marine algae, known as zooxanthellae, they receive some of their nutrients. They also capture planktonic organisms, food particles from the water column, and can absorb dissolved organic matter. This coral also benefits from the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water column.

In captivity, it does very well being fed zooplankton, mysis, and other very small minced shrimp or fish. Feeding several times a week can help them grow faster.
