Notes: These beautiful sponges will add a dramatic splash of color to any reef aquarium. Seahorses love to wrap their tails around the branches of these sponges.
Place the Tree Sponge towards the bottom of the aquarium where it will receive moderate to high water flow, but only low levels of light.
This sponge requires feedings of dissolved organic matter including marine snow and phytoplankton in order to maintain proper health.
Please Note: Do not expose sponges to air. Air can become trapped in the matrix channels, which line the inside of its body blocking food from reaching its cells. This will result in the death of the sponge. When placing the sponge in the aquarium place the shipping bag in the aquarium and cut the bag open underwater. Remove the sponge from the bag underwater and let it fall into the aquarium. Twist the shipping bag closed underwater, and discard the water in the bag. A small amount of shipping water will escape into your aquarium using this method, but our shipping water is completely reef safe.
