Tubastraea und Dendrophyllia gehören beide zur Familie Dendropyhllidae.

Tubastrea-Korallen haben keine Zooxanthellen und leben nicht vom Licht. Somit können sie an einem dunklen Standort platziert werden. Allerdings müssen Tubastreas regelmäßig gefüttert werden, dann sind sie durchaus gut haltbar.

Zudem mögen sie eine laminare, leichte Strömung die das Futter an ihnen vorbeitreibt.

Wir empfehlen, aufgetautes Frostfutter wie Mysis oder auch Pelletfutter mit dem Fauna Marin ReefBuster oder einer langen Pinzette direkt auf die Polypen zu geben. Am besten früh morgens oder abends, wenn die Polypen sichtbar sind.



If your favorite animal has already been reservated or is no longer available, we will offer to you a comparable alternative. In this case we will inform you via e-mail or phone. Please keep in mind that shape and color of the delivered animals may vary from the photos due to little changes occuring during shipping or because of color reproducibility, which depends on your individial monitor. 

Lighting used while taking the photos is consisting of T5-tubes „Aqua Science Duo“ and „Aqua Science Blue“ at the ratio of 1:1. Using other illuminants may cause differing color perception.
