Coral Spotlight | Favia

Common names: moon coral, brain coral

Difficulty Level:Sensitivity depends a bit on the species, but most are quite tolerant, forgiving and easy to care for.

Feeding: Most species have fairly good prey capture abilities,*and will even accept pellets placed directly on their mouths. Growth may accelerate if fed regularly.

Lighting (Level 4 to 7): Favias will thrive in a wide range of lighting. As with most hard corals, bleaching is a concern, so always acclimate by starting them lower in the tank and slowly move them up to your desired location.

Water flow: Moderate to strong flow.

Placement: Favias will encrust over rocks, so it is usually best to place them on a hard surface. Some species have long sweeper tentacles, so leave space between them and other corals to prevent fighting.

General: This is a huge group of corals with a lot of different care requirements, so be sure to research further on your specific specimen

I'm really digging the red rims on this specimen. It really pops under blue LED!

Found a nice splash paint variation for you this morning. Favia colors and patterns never end.

This one has especially bright mouths. Bet it would look amazing grown out!
