The “pistil coral” Stylophora pistillata is an absolute must for every reef aquarium, we have it in the two color forms ‘cream’ and ‘purple’. It is widespread in the Indo-Pacific, both geographically from the Red Sea to Polynesia, and in the different subhabitats of the reefs: Thus it occurs in the absolute shallow water near the beach and on the reef top, where it often falls dry for several hours at low tide and is exposed to the blazing tropical sun, up to the lower reef slope. Of course, it also lives in the lagoons and is one of the few coral species that occur all the way into the mangroves. Its coloration and growth habit varies greatly according to different environmental parameters such as light, current and sedimentation. In the aquarium it is robust, tolerating increased nutrient concentrations, as well as very weak to extremely strong light.

Stylophora pistillata `lila´

The purple so-called “Milka coral” is widely used in marine aquaristics because of its attractive coloration and good fragmentability. From the attitude it is just as grateful as the cream-colored growth form.

Stylophora pistillata `creme´

The “cream-colored” variant of Stylophora pistillata is very variable in coloration depending on the light intensity: Under low light intensity it is quite dark, colored into brown – under high light intensity it has a bright cream-orange-yellow, with neon-green polyps. The reason for this is that at lower light intensity it needs more zooxanthellae to meet its nutrient requirements, at high light it can cope with a lower zooxanthellae density – and the coral’s own color pigments come into play more.

The needle corals of the genus Seriatophora are robust and fast growing. With their spiny thicket of thin coral branches, they provide shelter for many small creatures. Due to their strong growth they should be placed rather at the edge.

Seriatopora hystrix `pink´

The pink needle coral Seriatophora hystrix should not be missing in any reef aquarium.
It is robust and insensitive to water parameters and nutrients. Unlike S. caliendrum, the small polyps are arranged in parallel rows on the thin branches.
Under high light intensities it grows quite stocky – under low light rather sprawling.

Seriatopora caliendrum `gelb´

The yellow Seriatopora caliendrum is almost as fast growing as the related “Hystrix“. Its branch tips, unlike the latter, are somewhat blunted and the polyps do not run exactly in parallel rows.
It too grows into a spiny thicket, with the lower and inner shaded areas dead – numerous small creatures find shelter between the thin coral branches. It also tolerates lower light intensities and is best placed in the marginal areas because of its rapid growth.

Pocillopora damicornis `pink´

The “Raspberry Coral” is one of the few corals that reproduces in the aquarium by polyp discharge, which is a form of asexual reproduction. The mother colony, which must have reached a certain size, produces fully developed small polyps, which attach themselves elsewhere in the aquarium and gradually grow into a new colony. These new colonies are genetically identical to the mother colony, i.e. clones of it. It is robust and relatively fast growing.

Pocillopora sp. `grün´

Our green Pocillopora is possibly a green color form of P. damicornis. It is also robust and fast growing and likes bright locations.
