Cyphastrea are sometimes referred to as a Meteor Coral however most aquarists simply refer to them by their scientific name. Cyphastrea are forgiving and can thrive if water parameters aren’t perfect. Reefkeepers can dose with calcium, alkalinity and magnesium to maximize growth, and believe us, they will grow fast! Keep your salinity, nitrate and Ph within the normal safe zones to keep this gorgeous coral healthy.
Cyphastrea love lower light conditions whether you run LED’s or T5’s so start your Cyphastrea very low in the tank and move it up over time.
Cyphastrea rely heavily on the products of their zooxanthellae. This coral benefits from the addition of phytoplankton as a food source. While the coral itself may consume some phytoplankton, the real benefit is the increased population of rotifers that feed on the phytoplankton. Rotifers make a good meal to a vast array of corals.
