Large Polyp Stony (LPS) Corals are an excellent choice for new aquarists looking to add stunning stony corals to their tanks. LPS Corals generally thrive in low to medium light, so no costly lighting equipment is necessary. In addition, they require less maintenance such as fewer water changes, chemical adjustment, and temperature regulation than their cousins, Small Polyp Stony (SPS) Corals. In clean water with a moderate flow and a constant source of calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium, you can grow your own beautiful reef with LPS Corals.
Stony corals are the architects of calcium carbonate reef structures found in the wild, and occur naturally in all of the world’s oceans. They create their intricate structures by slowly secreting calcium carbonate to protect their soft bodies, then build on the skeleton left behind. The rate of growth varies from species to species but in general, the more you feed LPS Corals, the faster they grow. However, you don’t have to wait to enjoy LPS Corals. With their long tentacles, beautiful, vivid colors and swaying movements, LPS Corals are as eye catching as the coral structures they create.Read More
