Care Level for Leptoseris Coral
Ease of Care: Moderate. Leptoseris is a hardy coral species that can be a good choice for mid-level aquarists who have established reef tanks with stable conditions.
Lighting: Low to Moderate. Leptoseris corals are adaptable to a range of lighting conditions but typically prefer lower levels of lighting compared to other SPS corals.
Water Flow: Moderate. These corals thrive in a steady but not too strong water flow, which helps to keep their surface clean and aids in nutrient uptake.
Water Parameters: Stable water parameters are crucial, with salinity around 1.025 specific gravity, pH between 8.1 and 8.4, and temperatures from 76°F to 80°F.
Dietary Needs: They have symbiotic algae known as zooxanthellae, which provide the majority of their nutritional needs through photosynthesis.
Recommended Foods: While not essential, they can benefit from occasional feedings of fine particulate foods or plankton.
Feeding Frequency: If you choose to feed, once a week is typically sufficient for these corals, but always observe their reaction and adjust as needed.
