More Details

General info about Toxic Scoly

In general, corals coming from the genus Scolymia are round solitary corals that has a single mouth located at the center. Their coloration usually has an alternating radial bands with a cup, saucer, flat or dome shaped variations.

As for the Toxic Scoly, they are predominantly colored green with pink perpendicular lines. This are the water parameters for cultivating Toxic Scoly:

  • 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

The primary nourishment of the Toxic Scoly is provided by the symbiotic zooxanthllae living within its tissues. But on top of this, we recommend you still do supplemental feeding by adding mysis or brine shrimp.

Determining Sex

Caution

You have nothing to worry about Toxic Scoly. They have a peaceful behaviour and do not attack even if there is a nearby coral.

Acclimation Process

Toxic Scoly are a marine species. Therefore, salinity must be entirely maintained at 1.023 to 1.025 specific gravity.
