Species: Acropora nana
History: We had gotten a frag of this coral from Menard in Chicago back in 2003, had it till "the crash of 08" and then recently scored a piece from a buddy here in Chicago. This coral grows a lace like table that goes a few inches before it branches. Its a stunning look to any reefscape.
Thank you for checking out our sustainably raised corals! Let us know if you have any questions or looking for something you don't see listed. Chances are we might have it growing in one of our other systems.
Pictures: Mother colony or typical frags shown in picture from our tanks. Most SPS frags are 3/4" - 1" so they ship nicely in our shipping containers.
Shipping: Shipping will be a flat $45. Please ask us if you would prefer Saturday Delivery.
Arrive Alive Guarantee: Yes! We need any DOA pics within the first hour to claim.
Current Parameters: We recommend trying to replicate the parameters these corals were grown in. This helps for an easy transition to your tank and helps the corals get off on the right foot.
Placement: Mount your new coral using IC gel glue, putty, or a combinations of both. Place the coral on a rock or ledge in a location that receives ample lighting and random flow.
Water Chemistry: Alkalinty- 7.5-8.5, Magnesium 1290-1350, Salinity- 35 (read salinity vs SG) , Calcium-400-425. Nitrate- 4-10, Phosphates- .01-.1
Lighting: 250-400 PAR Acropora corals require fairly intense lighting to maintain proper color. T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow acropora when the proper PAR levels are provided.
Flow: Medium to High. Our frag system has some major motion!
Feeding: We recommend feeding acropora corals with a combination of foods like Zooplanktons, Phytoplanktons, Amino Acids and other Organic Proteins. A daily broadcast feeding while return and circulations pumps are stopped will ensure the corals have the ability to consume the nutrients they require.
