  • Description
  • The Finger Sponge is a stunning and very colorful sponge. Finger Sponges grow upward in a branching manner from a central trunk. Finger Sponges are mostly found in orange and red hues.

    Finger Sponges should be placed in the bottom to middle of the tank and need low lighting and high water flow. Finger Sponges also need to be kept in tanks with pristine water quality. After you have placed your Finger Sponge, watch for any signs of stress. If you see any signs of stress from your Finger Sponge, just move it slightly and watch for improvement.

    Finger Sponges are very hard to keep species and should only be attempted by the most expert of aquarists. Finger Sponges can never be exposed to air, and if they are they will more than likely perish. Finger Sponges are peaceful and will not bother other sponges or corals. Just make sure that you plan for the growth of the Finger Sponge and give it room to grow.

    Finger Sponges need to be fed foods that are specially designed for sponges. Finger Sponges should also not be kept with fish that eat sponges like some species of angelfish.
