Care Level for Astreopora Coral
Ease of Care: Moderate. Astreopora corals are somewhat adaptable but benefit from a stable aquarium environment and careful attention to their specific care requirements.
Lighting: Moderate to High. Astreopora typically flourish under moderate to high lighting, enabling its symbiotic zooxanthellae to fulfill nutritional needs and display vibrant coloration.
Water Flow: Moderate. A consistent water flow is appreciated by Astreopora, ensuring adequate nutrient delivery and waste removal without being overly harsh.
Water Parameters: Stability is essential, with salinity between 1.023 and 1.025 specific gravity, pH within the range of 8.1 to 8.4, and temperatures from 76°F to 80°F.
Dietary Needs: Largely photosynthetic, Astreopora receive most of their nutrition from their zooxanthellae, but may also benefit from supplemental feeding.
Recommended Foods: Infrequent supplemental feeding with phytoplankton or other suitable micro foods can be considered, based on the aquarium’s nutrient levels.
Feeding Frequency: While primarily sustained by their zooxanthellae, providing additional nutrition bi-weekly can enhance their overall health and vitality.
