Description

The Green Fungia Plate is a great beginner coral and will definitely bring a splash of colour to the sand bed of any reef aquarium.

Placement: Place the Green Fungia Plate Coral on the sand bed where they will receive low to moderate currents and low to moderate lighting.

Feeding: Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within them supply some of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do benefit from supplemental feedings once or twice per week. Offer Mysis shrimp, and other chopped meaty foods when their tentacles are extended.

Lighting & Flow Requirements: The Green Fungia Plate Coral requires low water flow and low to moderate lighting (PAR 100-220). T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow Fungia Corals when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K colour spectrum for the best colouration.

Care Level: Easy
Lighting Requirements: Low to moderate (PAR 100-220)
Water Flow: Low to moderate
Aggressiveness: Semi-aggressive
Range: Indo Pacific UK Grown
Family: Fungiidae
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 Water Chemistry: 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. Dosing: 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.
