Metallic Green Galaxea - Galaxea sp. - Medium
Galaxy Corals (Galaxea sp.) are very popular with many aquarists because of their hardiness and beauty. Most will consist of large colonies of separate corallites with small tentacles extending from each one.
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. 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 is always 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.
