General info about Toxic Splatter Bubble Coral Plerogyra

In general, corals from the genus Plerogyra has a skeletal structure that is classified as flabello-meandroid. This means that their skeleton is not solid and not continuous. But instead, their skeletal structure has depressions or valleys. Their polyps can expand in a relatively large size that usually takes the form of grapes, tubes or irregular.

For the Toxic Splatter Bubble Coral Plerogyra, they are predominatly colored light blue with a green undertone on the side. This are the water parameters for cultivating Toxic Splatter Bubble Coral Plerogyra:

  • Calcium: 420 - 440 ppm
  • Alkalinity: 2.86 - 3.93 MEQ/L (8 - 11 dKH)
  • Phosphates: 0
  • Magnesium: 1260 - 1350
  • Strontium: 8 -10
  • Temperature: 75° - 80° F (24° - 27° C)
  • Salinity / Specific Gravity: 1.023 - 1.025
  • pH: 8.1 - 8.4

Diet & Nutrition

The Green Bubble Coral Plerogyra get its primary nutrition from the symbiotic zooxanthellae living within its tissues. However, we still do recommend you do supplemental feeding by adding mysis and brine shrimp.
