Purple Stylophora Coral Stylophora

Stylophora are a branching small polyp stony coral (SPS) from the Family Pocilloporidae. It is commonly referred to as a Cat’s Paw Coral. They are less commonly seen than most other SPS for sale however they make a great addition to any high light, high flow reef system.

It is recommend the Purple Stylophora coral are fed with with coral food. Target feeding gets the corals fed using less food while keeping your nitrates and phosphates lower.

This peaceful Purple Stylophora coral requires moderate to high water flow and bright lighting (PAR 300-450) to maintain its colour. T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow Vivid Purple Stylophora Coral when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K colour spectrum for best coloration.

It is important that proper calcium (420-440 ppm), alkalinity (8-9.5 dkh – run it 7-8 if you are carbon dosing) , and magnesium levels (1260-1350 ppm) are maintained. Raising magnesium levels gradually up to 1400-1600 ppm can help to combat algae outbreaks. Nitrates should be below 10 ppm and phosphates should be below .10 ppm.

Acclimatising your new corals is an important method to make sure they survive and thrive in your system. Get in touch for more information.
