Notes: Colt Coral are fast growing and easy to keep in the home aquarium. Easily distinguished by their slimy texture which is similar to a wet bar of soap. They will sway back and forth in the currents filtering food from the water.
Place the Colt Coral on an exposed rock in the top half of the aquarium. Make sure that moderate currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements. Leave several inches around the Colt Coral as it can sting and harm other corals it touches, especially Leather Corals.
Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within them supply most of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do require supplemental feedings. Supplementing their diet with the addition of iodine, trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, and food for filter feeders will help to insure their continued good health.
This coral will slime during shipping. Gently rinse it off in saltwater before placing it in your display aquarium.
