Pink Cyphastrea Decadia
The Cyphastrea Decadia or Lesser knob Coral (poor thing!) is a rarer variety of cyphastrea.
It is an LPS coral (Large polyp stony) which looks surprising similar to an SPS coral at first glance.
Cyphastrea are found in a variety of different colourations, however most of them are encrusting, where as this species is unique, as its a branching type.
This coral is visually appealing as it comes with both an interesting growth pattern and vivid pink colouration.
This coral needs appropriate 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 sea water.
Additional feeding isn't required to maintain its health however it will feed on micro-plankton and very fine coral foods.
