  • Description
  • The Blood Orange Cyphastrea, a captivating variety of Cyphastrea coral, is a popular choice for reef aquariums due to its unique appearance and vibrant coloration. This LPS (Large Polyp Stony) coral is aptly named for its rich, deep orange polyps that resemble the color of blood oranges, creating a visually stunning display in any reef tank. Its encrusting growth form allows it to spread across rocks and other surfaces, adding a touch of dramatic flair to the underwater landscape. The Blood Orange Cyphastrea is a relatively easy coral to care for, making it a great choice for both beginners and experienced aquarists.

    This cultured variety thrives in moderate lighting conditions and low to moderate water flow. It is important to maintain stable water parameters, including calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium levels, to ensure its health and vibrant coloration. As a photosynthetic coral, it can obtain some nutrients from light, but it also benefits from occasional feedings of phytoplankton or other coral foods. With proper care, the Blood Orange Cyphastrea will flourish and create a beautiful focal point in any reef aquarium, adding a touch of warmth and intensity to the underwater world. Its vibrant coloration and encrusting growth form make it a captivating addition to any coral collection.
