Care Level for Rhodactis Mushroom Coral
Ease of Care: Easy. Rhodactis Mushrooms are robust and adaptable, making them well-suited for beginners and experienced reef keepers alike.
Lighting: Low to Moderate. They thrive in a range of lighting conditions but generally prefer lower to moderate light levels.
Water Flow: Low to Moderate. A gentle water flow is ideal for Rhodactis, allowing them to fully expand and capture food particles from the water column.
Water Parameters: Maintain stable reef conditions with temperatures between 72°F to 78°F, a pH of 8.1-8.4, and specific gravity of 1.023-1.025.
Dietary Needs: Rhodactis mushrooms are primarily photosynthetic, housing symbiotic algae (zooxanthellae) that provide most of their nutritional needs. However, they also benefit from supplemental feedings.
Recommended Foods: Fine particulate foods, such as zooplankton or phytoplankton, as well as coral-specific foods designed for filter feeders.
Feeding Frequency: While not necessary, if you choose to feed your Rhodactis, doing so once a week should be sufficient.
