The Freak Hair Pavona is a reef tank stunner! A rich magenta base colour coats this gorgeous pavona variety. Contrasting, neon yellow-green tentacles are clustered so closely that they resemble hair. The claws and suckers on its body create plenty of places for corals to grow. It also likes lower light and moderate flow levels, making it perfect for those with more experience in the hobby. This variety will thrive in either fresh or saltwater settings with bright colours coming out when calcium and other trace nutrients are present as well as under strong lighting systems like LED lights or metal halide
Care Level: Easy in SPS tank!
Lighting Requirements: Moderate
Water Flow: Moderate
Range: Tonga & Fiji
Water Conditions: 75-80° F; sg 1.024-1.026 (1.025 is ideal); pH 8.1-8.4 Ca 420-440 ppm, Alk 8-9.5 dKH, Mg 1260-1350, Nitrates <10ppm, Phosphates, < .10ppmIt is important that proper calcium (420-440 ppm), alkalinity (8-9.5 dkh – run it 7-8 if you are carbon dosing) , and magnesium levels (1260-1350 ppm) are maintained.
Raising magnesium levels gradually up to 1400-1600 ppm can help to combat algae outbreaks, just keep CA and Alk in line as you raise the Mg.
Nitrates should be below 10 ppm and phosphates should be below .10 ppm. We recommend doing a water change when Nitrate levels rise to 10 ppm. It is important to replace your phosphate media when phosphates rise to .10 ppm.
Media Reactors make the most efficient use of your phosphate media by fluidizing it. Fraggle Reef uses and recommends dosing pumps to automate the dosing of additives and keep your levels more constant.
A dosing pump can alleviate the chore of manually dosing your aquarium with Ca, Alk, & Mg 2,3, or 4 times per week and will benefit your aquarium by keeping your levels constant through frequent small additions of Ca, Alk, & Mg.
Our tanks all progressed when we switched from 3 manual dosings per week to 70 automatic dosings per week and we got a lot more work done.Acclimatising your new corals is an important method to make sure they survive and thrive in your system.
