Stylophora

Common names: cauliflower coral, birdsnest

Difficulty Level: Stylophora is one of the most forgiving SPS corals.

Feeding: Stylophora has extremely small polyps and only the ability to capture the smallest items. Feeding is not usually needed in a well lit reef.

Lighting (Level 6 to 10): These corals easily adapt to all medium to high light conditions, and they do it relatively easily. Less acclimation is needed, but care should still be taken.

Water flow: Moderate to strong flow is needed to keep these corals clear of debris. More flow will yield tighter growing colonies while less flow will give them a looser branch formation.

Placement: Stylophora is a very peaceful coral and should be placed away from others with more aggressive tendencies. Keep in mind their unique growth forms when placing them.

General: These corals can easily be confused with some species of branching montipora and birdsnest. Luckily their care is very similar.
