 Acanthphyllia Coral Care

Acanthophyllia is a truly spectacular center-piece coral ideal for any type of reef aquarium. They are available in almost every color of the rainbow and tend have intense flourescence. Large and meaty, these corals are generally durable and are not overly aggressive towards neighbors. Please see below for additional care tips for Acanthophyllia as well as checking out our Top 5 Tips for setting up a reef.




 Location

Australlia including the Great Barrier Reef.



 Lighting

Moderate lighting is recommended.

Low Light

Low light translates to about 30-50 PAR

Medium Light

Medium Light is between 50-150 PAR

High Light

High Light is anything over 150 PAR

Lighting is a loaded topic, so for a more in-depth discussion of lighting, please see our Deep Dive article.

 Water Flow

Low water flow is recommended. High water flow tends to cause the coral to retract and makes feeding difficult.

 Feeding

Acanthophyllia rely heavily on the products of their zooxanthellae. This coral may benefit from the addition of meaty foods such as mysis and krill.



 Propagation

In terms of propagation, this genus has not been propogated in captivity.


 Acclimation

Proper acclimation is extremely important considering the stress imposed on the animals by the shipping process. Please take a moment to review our Acclimation Guide.

 Photography

The images were taken with a Canon 5D mk II and 100mm macro lens under T5 Fluorescent lighting. Quite a lot goes into how we go about shooting the corals and anemones you see on Tidal Gardens. For an in-depth look at our methods, check out our comprehensive Reef Aquarium Photography FAQ.
