Red Blastomussa Wellsi
The Red Blastomussa Wellsi coral is a very popular addition to a reef tank, due to its almost flower like appearance.
There are two types of Blastomussa, Merletti and Wellsi, the biggest difference is that Wellsi have much larger polyps.
It is an LPS coral (Large polyp stony), which is easier to keep than most LPS and are pretty forgiving to beginner mistakes.
These coral do have have the ability to sting other corals, however their sting is considered weak in comparison to most LPS and are usually the loser in coral warfare.
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 seawater.
Additional feeding isn't required to maintain its health however it will feed on micro-plankton and very fine coral foods.
I've found that appropriate feeding can significantly increase their growth rate.
