The Prestige Reef Limeberry Hystrix, is one of the rarer Hystrix species with very brittle branches and sharp pointy tips.
This coral has been growing in my tank since June 2014 and during this time its been grown under both T5's and LED's.
Under each of these, it has flourished with both rapid growth and good colouration.
It is an SPS coral (small polyp stony) with a bright green base and dark green polyps
This coral needs good lighting and moderate flow to maintain optimum health.
In addition to this, it will also require the correct levels of Calcium, Alkalinity, and Magnesium along with various other trace elements found in natural seawater.
Additional feeding isn't required to maintain its health, as they get the majority of their food from photosynthesis. However, they will feed on micro-plankton and very fine coral foods.
Be sure to keep an eye on your nutrient levels though, as excessive nutrients can cause it to lose colouration.
