Care Level for Blasto Coral (Blastomussa sp.)
Ease of Care: Moderate. Blasto corals, known for their puffy polyps and rich colors, require stable water conditions and moderate care.
Lighting: Low to Moderate. They do not need intense lighting; too much can actually harm them. They are adaptable and can thrive under LED or T5 lighting that is not too direct or strong.
Water Flow: Low to Moderate. These corals prefer a gentle flow that allows them to capture food effectively without being overwhelmed.
Water Parameters: Keep the water quality high, with stable temperatures between 75-80°F, specific gravity at 1.025-1.026, and pH of 8.1-8.4.
Dietary Needs: These corals have symbiotic algae known as zooxanthellae that provide nutrients through photosynthesis, but they benefit from supplemental feedings.
Recommended Foods: Small meaty foods like mysis shrimp, finely chopped fish, or prepared coral foods are ideal.
Feeding Frequency: Feeding 2-3 times a week is beneficial, although they can survive with less frequent feedings due to their symbiotic relationship with zooxanthellae.
What Our Clients Say About Us
Really fun buying during the Tiki Torch Sale! (That may be the wrong name 🤷). Regardless, the sale was a ton of fun and I got some really amazing pieces for a crazy good price. They had crazy $5 specials, just had to be fast enough. You could win three of them, and you have to buy three at discounted prices. Really awesome selection, got way more than three at the prices they had. Really great shipping, worked around my schedule. Due to weather delays, several orders came in today so I received about 35 pieces total. The packaging was really well done and getting these guys settled into the tank was a breeze. All of them are mostly out in just a couple of hours. So awesome! Not a single complaint for these guys! Will be back for the next sale.
100% recommended, I had doubts about buy corals on line, but I trusted in Riptide Aquaculture and I’m satisfied with my choice, excellent service, All corals arrived in good conditions, good colors, and good shape.
They are the best!! Best prices and corals are always beautiful and healthy upon arrival. They have great specials and cool promotions. I actually won a raffle contest through their reeftober fest. They sent me an unbelievable selection of frags including my new favorites. I’m from Dallas with numerous local fish stores and I won’t shop at any of them anymore.
