More Details

General info about Maui Wowi Mushroom

In general, mushroom corals coming from the genus Rhodactis are classified as a false coral without a skeleton, although their internal structures are the same with stony corals. Their stalk is very small that is located just above the pedal disc which is the area where they attach themselves to the substrate.

This are the water parameters for cultivating Maui Wowi Rhodactis Mushroom: 

  • 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, Maui Wowi Rhodactis Mushroom 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 Maui Wowi Rhodactis Mushroom. They must be set at the bottom of the tank to simulate their natural wild environment.

Breeding & Spawning

The Maui Wowi Rhodactis requires moderate lighting and moderate water flow.

Diseases

The Maui Wowi Rhodactis can be found in the waters of the Indo-Pacific Ocean.

Origination

The Maui Wowi Rhodactis has semi-aggressive behavior. Proper spacing must be observed in relation to other coral species in the tank.

Acclimation Process

The Maui Wowi Rhodactis Mushroom is a marine species. Therefore, salinity must be maintained thoroughly at 1.023 to 1.025 specific gravity.

Venomous

The Maui Wowi Rhodactis Mushroom has sweeper tentacles that can sting nearby corals.
