View Full Version : What kind of coral is this?

03/24/2013, 10:22 AM
Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and as well to this hobby. I recently got a bio-cube 29 and I had the process started by getting live sand. Today I went to the local reef store and bought some live Rock. Everything good so far right ? Well it wasn't long until I noticed that the live rock had a really small coral attached to it. The reef store failed to check the rock for hidden corals. My aquarium is about 5 days old I'm aware you are not supposed to have corals until the tank has cycled, but due to this situation I do now. I have no clue what kind of coral it is, but so far it seems like its doing ok. Can any of you identify this coral? If so please let me know what I can do to ensure its survival? Any help will be greatly received.

Looks like some sort of mushroom, I don't think there is much you can really do but in my experence there pretty hardy

I would also say some kind of mushroom. Mushrooms in my experiece are THE most hardy. You really don't NEED to supplement a mushroom...but of course in can help. Mostly make sure it gets enough light. If it looks bad essential elements or some marine snow, phytoplankto, or zooplankton could help it.
