    Joe Burger's (aka JBNY) occupational life has absolutely nothing to do with the reefing world. He is solely a hobbyist, who loves the amazing world of aquaria and those awesome, but sometimes frustrating, corals we call SPS. Joe has been keeping aquariums since the 2nd grade so...he's been intrigued by them for quite some time. In 2000, he started keeping reef tanks, focusing mostly on SPS. His tanks have been featured on web sites, in forums, magazines, and books. He has been sharing his experiences and helping fellow SPS hobbyists for the last 15 years, whether it is by writing articles, participating in speaking engagements, or being an active presence in the online communities.

Coral Spotlight | Hydnophora


Rating - 0%
0   0   0
Denver, Colorado
Common Names: Knob coral, velvet horn, branch coral

Difficulty Level: Hydnophora is one of the easier SPS corals with minimal chemical needs other than stability and higher light.

Feeding: Hydno will eat small particulate meat based foods such as rotifers or cyclopeze.

Lighting: Higher lighting is a must as with most SPS corals.

Waterflow: Strong random current will suite hydnophora in keeping its flesh clear of detritus and other debris.

Placement: Hydno is an aggressive SPS coral, so keep it away from other more sensitive species.

General: Hydnophora comes in many different growth forms, but with the same super-fluorescent coloration on most, they are easy to pick out
