JF BLING BLING CYPHASTREA CORAL
The JF Bling Bling Cyphastrea is one of the hottest and Exotic designer corals around! This cyphastrea variety has a rich magenta base color with neon yellow accenting the mouth of each polyp. This is one of the most eye-catching colorations we’ve seen in a cyphastrea. There’s nothing better than finding a hot coral that pops in your tank, grows fast and is easy to keep. It’s best kept in low light, low flow conditions and spreads quickly.
Cyphastrea are very hearty and will thrive even if your water parameters aren’t perfect. Dose properly with calcium, alkalinity and magnesium to maximize growth, and believe me, they will grow fast! Keep your salinity, nitrate and Ph within the normal safe zones to keep this gorgeous coral healthy.

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.
