These marine animals need extra care
to ensure survival, including: special sun-like lighting, clear and
clean water, warm water temperatures and the right balance of salt
in the water.
Avoid adding corals to your tank if
you already have: parrotfish, butterfly fish, angelfish, sea
slugs, snails, worms and some starfish.
Hard or stony coral have skeletons made from limestone and look
like rock (pictured, left). They build colonies called coral
Hard coral need tiny algae called
zooxanthellae to survive. These zooxanthellae actually live
inside the coral polyps and provide 80% or more of the corals
nutritional needs as well as the color of the coral.
Soft coral have soft skeletons that are bendable and often look
like trees or plants (pictured, left). They grow wood-like cores
for support. They don't build coral reefs.
Phytoplankton. This live food provides direct and
indirect feeding with a positive effect on water quality.
Phytoplankton are tiny floating marine
organisms that are the basis of the ocean food chain. Many
coral reef animals eat plankton including clams, soft corals, stony
coral, sponges and feather duster worms.
Eggs. This live food is a highly nutritious zooplankton
replacement for coral.
