How long we've kept this coral: 8 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.

    The coral was delivered exceptionally well packed and a very good size for the price. Will be ordering from captive ocean again.

                Strong colour.

                Good size for the money. Deep pink polyps on dark red base with hints of green metallic. A great addition to any tank.

                  Received this recently. As someone else has said, the pic above doesn't do it justice. Beautiful good size frag and GREAT packaging.

                      A lot of money for one frag, but worth every penny. The colour is great and already it has settled into my tank.

                          I've been eyeing up this particular coral for some now, and when it became available I bought it. Not disappointed at all. It came extremely well packaged, and the coral itself is beautiful. Thank you very much!

                                            My first experience of buying coral online and having delivered... definitely not my last. Very impressed with speed of delivery, quality of packing and most of all the condition of the frag. Much bigger than I expected, lovely colour and polyps extended straight away. Thankyou!
