Specifications

Overview

The Branch Jewelpot Coral is often referred to as Daisy Coral, Ball Coral, or Sunflower Coral. All of the flower references are because of its appearance when all of its polyps are opened. It takes on the visage of a bouquet of flowers. It is the rounded or ball-shaped variety and should not be confused with its branching relatives.

This Flowerpot Coral coloration is a brown or gray with brilliant green to dark gray-green highlights, that when displayed under actinic lighting, will glow. It is not overly aggressive, but space should still be provided between itself and other neighboring corals.
Its polyps can extend far past its base into the reef aquarium, where it can sting other species of corals.

Being a moderately difficult coral to care for and requires moderate lighting combined with moderate water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides the majority of its nutritional requirements from the algas light driven process of photosynthesis.
It will also benefit from additional food in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp. Clownfish will often be found in association with the Flowerpot Coral and play in its polyps if no anemone can be found in the reef aquarium.
