Care Level for Micromussa
Ease of Care: Moderate. Micromussa corals are hardy but benefit from stable water conditions.
Lighting: Moderate. While they can adapt to various lighting conditions, a medium level of lighting is often ideal to bring out their vibrant colors without causing stress.
Water Flow: Low to Moderate. Micromussa corals appreciate a gentle water flow, which helps in removing waste and delivering food without being too forceful.
Water Parameters: Stable marine conditions are essential. Salinity should be between 1.023 to 1.025 specific gravity, pH should be maintained between 8.1 to 8.4, and temperatures ideally between 75°F and 79°F.
Dietary Needs: While Micromussa corals have zooxanthellae that provide some nutrition through photosynthesis, they are also carnivorous and benefit from direct feeding.
Recommended Foods: They enjoy small meaty foods like mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and specially formulated coral foods.
Feeding Frequency: Feeding directly once or twice a week is often adequate. Monitor their response and adjust the feeding schedule as needed, ensuring not to overfeed.
