Neon Candy Cane

Neon green Candy Cane corals add some eye candy to a reef tank. This is an LPS (large polyped stony) coral, which when cared for properly will continue to grow and split, making new heads. Essentially a night feeding coral, short tentacles extend to trap any food in the water column. Under actinic lighting, these corals glow brightly. Good water quality is a must. LPS corals need calcium so they can continually build the base structure. Fragging this coral is possible by carefully breaking the branches at the base.
