Care Level for Toadstool Leather Coral (Sarcophyton sp.)
Ease of Care: Easy. Toadstool Leather Corals are very hardy and adaptable, making them an excellent choice for beginners in the reef aquarium hobby.
Lighting: Moderate. They can thrive under a range of lighting conditions, but moderate lighting is typically preferred.
Water Flow: Moderate. A moderate and indirect water flow is ideal to help the coral’s tissue rid itself of mucus and detritus.
Water Parameters: Typical reef conditions apply, with stable temperatures between 75-80°F, pH of 8.1-8.4, and specific gravity of 1.023-1.025.
Dietary Needs: Mainly photosynthetic. These corals have a symbiotic relationship with zooxanthellae algae that provide most of their nutritional needs via photosynthesis. They also absorb nutrients from the water column.
Recommended Foods: Though not necessary, they can benefit from occasional feedings of planktonic and dissolved organic foods.
Feeding Frequency: Direct feeding is generally not required but can be done sparingly, no more than once a week if desired.
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.
