High Light    High Flow

SPS (Small Polyp Stony Corals)

An expert level and rather sensitive genre of coral (although there are exceptions within the category). Most SPS require intense light and high "randomized" flow as a general rule of thumb. What does this mean for you?

Best Parameters: Alkalinity 9-10DKH, Calcium 430-450, Magnesium 1250-1400, PH 8.1-8.4, Salinity 1.024-1.026, Temp 78-80, Par 150-300.

Best Tank Placement: Placing your new corals on the sand bed or low mounted frag rack etc is always recommended for the first 2-3 days to acclimate your corals to their new environment. Once this time period has passed, the majority of corals in the SPS will prefer upper rock work placement (with a few exceptions). Each item in our inventory will have placement recommendations in the product description. And of course, we are always available to answer questions and make recommendations!
