Care Level for Chalice Corals

Ease of Care: Moderate to Difficult. Chalice corals can be more demanding, requiring stable and pristine water conditions.

Lighting: Moderate. They do best under moderate lighting, but their placement should be adjusted based on the coral's response and the intensity of light in the aquarium.

Water Flow: Low to Moderate. Gentle to moderate water movement is ideal, which helps them feed and prevents detritus from accumulating.

Water Parameters: Salinity should be around 1.025 specific gravity, pH between 8.1 and 8.4, and temperatures should range from 76°F to 82°F.

Dietary Needs: Photosynthetic but benefits from supplemental feedings.

Recommended Foods: Finely minced meaty foods, planktonic suspensions, or specially formulated coral foods can be provided.

Feeding Frequency: They can be target-fed 1-2 times per week, though they'll also capture nutrients from the water column.

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.
