Placement:Mount your new coral using reef safe gel glue or putty. Place the coral on a rock or bottom in a location that receives indirect lighting and ample flow.
Feeding:SomethingFISHY recommends feeding Soft corals with a combination of foods like Zooplanktons, Phytoplanktons, Amino Acids and other Organic Proteins. A daily broadcast/Spot feeding while return and circulation pumps are stopped will ensure the corals have the ability to consume the nutrients they require.
Lighting & Flow:Soft corals require moderate to low water flow and low lighting to maintain proper color. T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow Softies when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 18-20K color spectrum for best coloration.
