The Green Duncan Corals are a particular delight for those taking their first steps into aquariums. They are relatively easy to maintain, thriving in a number of robust conditions. As a result the Interstellar Bounce provides a series of fluorescent colours, predominantly in a rich green with hues of pink. So whether a hobbyist or expert, these mushrooms are guaranteed to add some striking patterns to your aquarium.

Mount the Duncan Coral using IC gel glue, or putty, on an exposed rock or ledge in the lower two- thirds of the aquarium where they will receive low to moderate currents and low to moderate lighting.

Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within them supply most of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do benefit from supplemental feedings of mysis shrimp, or finely chopped meaty foods.

The Green Duncan Coral requires moderate water flow and low to moderate lighting (PAR 120-250). T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow Leather Corals when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.

 

Care Level: Easy
Lighting Requirements: Low to moderate (PAR 120-250)
Water Flow: Low to moderate
Aggressiveness: Peaceful
Range: Australia
Family: Dendrophylidae
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, < .10ppm

It 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.
