Milka Stylophora's physical structure is made of thick robust branches making it a visually appealing addition to almost any tank.
This coral has been growing in my tank since November 2016 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 purple base, purple polyps, and bright white tips
This coral needs good lighting and moderate flow to maintain optimum health, however, is more forgiving than some of the other SPS species.
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.
