Lighting and Waterflow
Stylocoeniella is a semi-cryptic low light coral that seems to need a fuller spectrum. Many times they thrive even in shade or on the back wall of aquariums. As with other SPS corals, stylocoeniella will require higher water flow.
They should be placed near the bottom of aquariums on rock that they may encrust and cover. Take care to keep LPS and other more aggressive corals away.
