Bali Green Slimer / Acropora Coral Acropora yongei

Category: SPS Corals

Price: £24.99 each

Discount: No discounts available

Stock: 2 in stock



Placement:

Mount the Bali Green Slimer Acropora Coral using IC gel glue, or putty, on an exposed rock or ledge in the aquarium where it will receive direct flow and light. Remember this coral can grow big over time so place it near the halfway up in your aquarium to give it room to grow and branch out. Adding some Red Montipora Capricornus around it once its established can create a nice contrast.

Feeding:

Fraggle Reef recommends feeding acropora corals with Reef-Roids. Target feeding gets the corals fed using less food while keeping your nitrates and phosphates lower.

Lighting & Flow Requirements:

Bali Green Slimer Acropora Coral requires moderate to high water flow and bright lighting (PAR 300-450) to maintain its color. T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow acropora when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.

Care Level: Easy in SPS tank!
Lighting Requirements: Moderate to high (PAR 300-450)
Water Flow: Moderate to high
Aggressiveness: Peaceful
Range: Indo-Pacific, Grown in UK
Family: Acroporidae
Water Conditions: 75-80° F; sg 1.024-1.026 (1.025 is ideal); pH 8.1-8.4 Ca 420-440 ppm, Alk 8-9.5 dKH, Mg 1260-1350, Nitrates <10ppm, Phosphates, < .10ppm

Water Chemistry:

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, just keep CA and Alk in line as you raise the Mg.

Nitrates should be below 10 ppm and phosphates should be below .10 ppm. We recommend doing a water change when Nitrate levels rise to 10 ppm. It is important to replace your phosphate media when phosphates rise to .10 ppm. Media Reactors make the most efficient use of your phosphate media by fluidizing it.

Dosing:

Fraggle Reef uses and recommends dosing pumps to automate the dosing of additives and keep your levels more constant. A dosing pump can alleviate the chore of manually dosing your aquarium with Ca, Alk, & Mg 2,3, or 4 times per week and will benefit your aquarium by keeping your levels constant through frequent small additions of Ca, Alk, & Mg. Our tanks all progressed when we switched from 3 manual dosings per week to 70 automatic dosings per week and we got a lot more work done.

Bali Green Slimer / Acropora Coral Acropora yongei

This wonderful Bali Green Slimer (Acropora yongei) has an attractive neon green colouration. This coupled with its remarkable resistance and growth rate make this coral one of the most sought by Acroporas for any newcomer to the SPS world. It is worth noting that it is a really tough and adaptable species type also.

This coral really is an eye catcher given its vivid green colour and wide, spidering branches. As the name suggests, they do 'slime' when touched and disturbed, so it may be a good idea to minimise contact. Given its extraordinary resistance, growth rate and beauty, Bali Green Slimer is a coral that should not be missing in any aquarium.
