Care Level for Astreopora Coral

Ease of Care: Moderate. Astreopora is a genus of Small Polyp Stony (SPS) corals that requires stable water conditions and attentive care, making it suitable for intermediate to experienced aquarists.

Lighting: Moderate to High. Astreopora corals thrive under moderate to high lighting conditions. It's important to provide adequate light to support their growth and coloration, but acclimation to the lighting in your aquarium is crucial to avoid stress.

Water Flow: Moderate to High. These corals benefit from strong and varied water flow, which helps mimic their natural habitat, promoting healthy growth and assisting in nutrient uptake and waste removal.

Water Parameters: Stability is key for the health of Astreopora corals. Maintain water temperatures between 76°F and 82°F, a pH of 8.1-8.4, and specific gravity around 1.025-1.026. Regular monitoring of calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium levels is also vital for their skeletal development.

Dietary Needs: Primarily photosynthetic, Astreopora corals benefit from the symbiotic algae (zooxanthellae) within their tissues that provide most of their nutritional needs. However, they can also capture food particles from the water, and occasional feeding can support more robust growth.

Recommended Foods: Fine particulate foods, such as phytoplankton, and other specially formulated coral foods suitable for SPS corals can supplement their diet.

Feeding Frequency: If you choose to feed your Astreopora coral, doing so 1-2 times per week can be beneficial, but ensure that fe

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.
