Notes: The Green Octobubble Coral is a unique and attractive large polyped stony (LPS) coral that is great for beginners. It has a light green color, and is a variation of the Bubble Coral. The difference between the two is the shape of the vesicles. It requires low to moderate water currents and moderate reef lighting for proper health. It is important that proper calcium and alkalinity levels are maintained. Use of Kalkwasser Mix or a calcium reactor will be of great benefit.
Place the Octobubble Coral on an exposed rock along the bottom two-thirds of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements. It expands to twice its normal size during the day and its long sweeper tentacles can sting nearby corals. Leave 3�-4� between it and other corals. Be careful to place it so that only the skeleton comes in contact with the live rock.
Supplement its diet with the addition of trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, and food for filter feeders.
