An SPS classic this hystrix, also known as birdsnest, has delicate pointed branches with pink polyps, a pink base and white growth tips.

Frags will be between 3 to 4cm mounted on a fragstone.

How long we've kept this coral: 11 years.


  • Calcium and alkalinity levels are important for all corals but especially so for SPS - for tips on maintaining the correct levels see the Reef Chemistry page.
  • SPS respond well to food of the right size - we feed ours regularly on rotifers.

        Pink Hysterix

        Fabulous service - best packaging I've seen and the frag was much bigger than expected (really a small colony). Excellent all round and will be back

            Pink Hystrix

            This coral has settled in beautifully and has numerous growing tips. I was really surprised by the size of this frag: much much bigger than others that I have received from elsewhere.
