Apple Fire Palythoa (Palythoa sp) are a highly sought after paly with vibrant colors of a red and yellow skirt with a bright lime green center.
We recommend phyto and/ or reefroids for feeding these amazing animals. We have an in-depth blog post about feeding corals that you can read. While we recommend medium flow and medium light, these palys are very hardy and will handle most any condition. These make great starter corals however they are aggressive growers and will takeover your saltwater aquarium if not managed.
These corals require steady water movement which can be turbulent or low-grade non linear currents
Photosynthetic corals best suited for tanks with plenty of shade from direct light
Corals with many tentacles that requires a phytoplankton or food blend as food source
