Notes: We imported the Original Vivid Echinophyllia in late 2006. To date this is our most sought after Echinophyllia. Although it is pictured with green eyes it will often grow a mixture of green eyes and orange eyes against a bright pink body.
Place the Vivid Echinophyllia 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.
Supplementing its diet with the addition of trace elements, marine snow, phytoplankton, and food for filter feeders will help to insure its continued good health. Try feeding it small pieces of squid or shrimp once a week by placing the food on the mouths located in the center of the polyp.
Do not keep with large angelfish or butterflyfish as they cannot seem to resist picking at its fleshy polyps.
