Coral frags included in the Assorted ORA® Aquacultured Beginner Hardy Frag 5 Pack will thrive under moderate to high lighting conditions achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs or the more intense metal halides. To maximize their growth rate, it is imperative to maintain high pH, alkalinity, and calcium levels. It is also important to keep phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. If conditions are ideal, these corals can be cultured and grown into a new colony by dedicated or experienced reef hobbyists. Under optimum conditions the growth rate of these aquacultured corals are more rapid than most other corals found in an established reef aquarium.
Along with proper lighting and high water quality, coral frags included in the Assorted ORA® Aquacultured Beginner Hardy Frag 5 Pack will thrive when provided medium to strong, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This can be easily achieved with the addition of powerheads, wavemakers, or water circulation pumps. The SPS corals included in the Assorted ORA® Aquacultured Beginner Hardy Frag 5 Pack satisfy the majority of their nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within their body. However, they will benefit from the addition of zooplankton or foods designed for corals and invertebrates. For continued good health, the ORA® Aquacultured SPS corals require the addition of calcium, magnesium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
These ORA coral frags are attached to a plastic frag plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.
