Care Level for Finger Leather Coral (Sinularia sp.)

Ease of Care: Easy. Finger Leather Coral is known for its hardiness and adaptability, making it a suitable choice for novice and experienced reef keepers alike.

Lighting: Moderate. Adaptable to various lighting conditions, but thrives best under moderate intensity. Gradual acclimation to the tank's lighting is recommended to prevent stress.

Water Flow: Moderate to High. Prefers water movement to facilitate feeding and removal of detritus, but the flow should not be excessively strong to cause physical damage.

Water Parameters: Stability in water conditions is essential. Aim for temperatures of 72-78°F (22-26°C), pH levels of 8.1-8.4, specific gravity of 1.023-1.025, calcium levels at 400-450 ppm, and alkalinity between 8-12 dKH.

Dietary Needs: Primarily photosynthetic, benefiting from symbiotic algae (zooxanthellae). Supplemental feeding can enhance growth and vitality, though it's not strictly necessary.

Recommended Foods: Microplankton or specially formulated coral foods can be offered occasionally to supplement their diet.

Feeding Frequency: Supplemental feeding once or twice a week is beneficial, but they will also derive nutrients from their symbiotic relationship with zooxanthellae and dissolved organic matter in the water.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Just got my first order in. Came the next day. Packaging was perfectly done and better than many other coral dealers. Each was clearly ID'd in specimen jars with care instructions for each one individually. The prior day I hadn't specified a delivery date (which is a great feature) and they called me to verify. Absolutely flawless experience and I'll be back. Really reasonable prices on corals as well. Worth every penny.

Excellent coral buying experience. All four corals arrived intact, each was packed in sufficient water and tripled bagged. Shipped from florida to california in 24 hrs. Communication was excellent and they adjusted delivery date per my request.

I just ordered 9 coral during Riptides recent reef2reef tiki sale. I requested they be delivered on a set day, but they realized that it may be too cold for shipping so they requested that it be moved out a week. The following week they shipped on time and the packaging was excellent. Heat pack inside the styrofoam box kept the coral warm in transit and each coral was triple bagged. They all were healthy and looked great when they arrived. One was kind of small, but I can’t really complain as it was only $5 during the sale. Overall I was very pleased with the entire process. I would highly recommend them.

Really fun buying during the Tiki Torch Sale! (That may be the wrong name 🤷). Regardless, the sale was a ton of fun and I got some really amazing pieces for a crazy good price. They had crazy $5 specials, just had to be fast enough. You could win three of them, and you have to buy three at discounted prices. Really awesome selection, got way more than three at the prices they had. Really great shipping, worked around my schedule. Due to weather delays, several orders came in today so I received about 35 pieces total. The packaging was really well done and getting these guys settled into the tank was a breeze. All of them are mostly out in just a couple of hours. So awesome! Not a single complaint for these guys! Will be back for the next sale.
