Metallic Green Galaxea Frag - Galaxea fascicularis (ORA)
Green Galaxea Frags from ORA are bright green in color and are mounted on an artificial reef disk or plug.
Galaxea corals are a very popular species with many aquarists because of there hardiness and beauty. Most will consist of large colonies of separate corallites with small tentacles extending from each one. When they are all extended they will give the impression of one complete colony.
Be careful when placing this coral near other corals as it has "sweeper tentacles" that can stretch up to 5 inches from the colony and will sting other corals that may compete for space.
A moderate flow of water over the coral allows for sufficient feeding for the coral. Invertebrate foods such as Marine Snow or Microvert along with other types should be fed once or twice a week and care must be taken to make sure water quality always stays good.
If the tank contains extremely strong lighting this coral may be placed on the substrate of the tank but generally mid to upper levels of the tank are a more appropriate choice.
ORA Frags are propagated by Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums, the largest marine ornamental fish hatchery in the world. They continuously develop new frags and many are available in very limited quantities. We are proud to offer ORA's corals as part of our coral frag collection.
