Care Level for Duncan Coral (Duncanopsammia axifuga)
Ease of Care: Easy to Moderate. Duncan corals, also known as Whisker Coral or Duncanopsammia, are generally hardy and tolerant, making them suitable for both beginners and experienced reef hobbyists.
Lighting: Moderate. Duncan corals thrive under moderate lighting, but can adapt to various lighting conditions.
Water Flow: Moderate. A moderate water flow is ideal for Duncan corals, as it helps to deliver food to their polyps and keep them clean without being too forceful.
Water Parameters: Stable water parameters within the typical marine aquarium range are ideal: specific gravity of 1.025-1.026, pH around 8.1-8.4, and temperatures between 76°F and 80°F.
Dietary Needs: Duncan corals are primarily photosynthetic but respond well to supplemental feeding.
Recommended Foods: They enjoy meaty foods like mysis shrimp and brine shrimp, as well as prepared foods formulated for LPS corals.
Feeding Frequency: Feeding 2-3 times a week is beneficial, especially if the tank lighting is not very intense.
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.
