Dość łatwy koralowiec jeśli chodzi o SPS , pod ledami był bardziej fioletowy , pod T5 jest o wiele jaśniejszy . Prowadzę zbiornik na produktach Aquaforest

Eine Art,die zwar acropora-bedingt gute Wasserwerte vorraussetzt,ohne aber gleich beim ersten Phosphat-Ausrutscher das Zeitliche zusegnen.
Auch bei Riffaquarianern die nicht nach der ZEOVIT-Methode arbeiten kann diese Art schöne Bestände entwickeln.
Selbst unter suboptimalen Bedingungen wächst sie;dann aber in der Farbe eher mittelbraun mit tief violetten Spitzen.

Wunderschönes Tier, welches in Sachen Farbenpracht eine absolute bereicherung für mein Becken ist.

Solange die Wasserwerte stimmen, ist diese Koralle in ihrer vollen Pracht zu bewundern.

Das Wachstum würde ich mit Acr. Formosa vergleichen, also schon eher schnell.
