General info about Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis

In general, mushroom corals coming from the genus Pseudocorynactis have small and rounded body with berry shaped tentacles. Both sides of the Pseudocorynactis Mushroom Corals are functional where the bottom part acts as a locomotive mechanism while the top portion acts as a mouth. Some of the larger species within this coral family are known to feed and devour crown of thorns starfish.

As for the Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis, they have transparent tentacles with orange tips. This are the water parameters for cultivating Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis: 

  • Calcium: 400 - 450 ppm
  • Alkalinity: 2.86 - 4.29 MEQ/L (8 - 12 dKH)
  • Phosphates: 0
  • Magnesium: 1200 - 1350
  • Strontium: 8 - 10
  • Temperature: 72° - 78° F (22° - 26° C)
  • Salinity / Specific Gravity: 1.023 - 1.025
  • pH: 8.1 - 8.4

Diet & Nutrition

In the wild, Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis has developed a symbiotic feeding relationship with marine algae called zooxanthellae that is living within their tissues. But in captivity, you have to feed them with nanoplankton and you may add dissolved organics in the water.

Determining Sex

A mature tank is highly recommended in propagating Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis. They must be set at the botoom of the tank to simulate their natural wild environment.

Breeding & Spawning

The Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis requires moderate lighting and moderate waterflow.

Origination

The Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis can be found in the waters of the Indo-Pacific Ocean.

Caution

The Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis has a semi-aggressive behaviour. Proper spacing must be observed in relation to other coral species in the tank.

Acclimation Process

The Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis is a marine species. Therefore, salinity must be maintained thoroughly at 1.023 to 1.025 specific gravity.

Venomous

The Orange Ball Pseudocorynactis has long sweeper tentacles that can sting nearby corals.
