Grassy Fields Stylocoeniella Frag

Grassy Fields Stylocoeniella frag is WYSIWYG!  Stylocoeniella are commonly referred to as Thorn Coral. If you need to add texture and color to your reef, this is your frag!

Husbandry

Stylocoeniella are a very sensitive SPS coral requiring stable alkalinity, calcium, nutrient levels and full spectrum lower lighting. For feedings, as with most SPS corals, small suspended particulate food will be accepted. Also, thorn corals need higher current and lower lighting which makes them great candidates for semi-shaded reef crevices.

Lighting and Placement

Thorn coral are semi-cryptic low light corals that seem to like a fuller light spectrum. Many times stylos will thrive even in shade or on the back wall of aquariums. As with most SPS, higher flow is a must for stylocoeniella. They should be placed near the bottom of aquariums on rock that they may encrust and cover. Thorn corals are more docile SPS coral. Therefore, take care to keep LPS and other more aggressive corals away.
