Care Level for Cyphastrea Coral
Ease of Care: Easy to Moderate. Cyphastrea is a robust and adaptable coral, making it suitable for a range of aquarists, including those with some experience in reef keeping.
Lighting: Low to Moderate. This coral species is not demanding in terms of lighting and can thrive under lower light conditions, but it also adapts well to moderate lighting.
Water Flow: Moderate. Cyphastrea corals benefit from a steady flow which helps in delivering nutrients and maintaining cleanliness, but the flow should not be too strong as to damage the coral.
Water Parameters: Maintain stable conditions within the typical marine aquarium range. This includes a temperature of 76-82°F, specific gravity of 1.025-1.026, and a pH of 8.1-8.4.
Dietary Needs: Mostly photosynthetic. While they rely heavily on their symbiotic relationship with zooxanthellae, supplementary feeding can promote growth and health.
Recommended Foods: Fine particulate foods like zooplankton or coral-specific feeds are beneficial.
Feeding Frequency: If supplemental feeding is provided, once or twice a week is typically sufficient.
