Light Level: Medium
Water Flow: Medium
Common Name: Jack-o-Lantern Leptoseris
Foods: Amino Acids, Rotifers, Phytoplankton, Powdered Coral Foods, Small Meaty Foods
An excellent coral for encrusting rocks and decorations. Bright Green/Yellow eyes combined with a light orange body and will add coloration to any tank.
As with most L.P.S (Large Polyp Stony) Corals, Jack "O" Lantern Leptoseis does better in areas of medium/low light combined with low flow. These corals are also able to tolerate higher levels of nitrate and phosphate compared to S.P.S. in some cases L.P.S corals do better in conditions with higher levels of nutrients. Tanks with low nutrients may require dosing of coral foods such as amino acids, rotifers, phyto plankton, and powdered coral foods. L.P.S with their larger mouth is also able to consume small pellets and small pieces of frozen food. Being a stony coral requires adequate levels of calcium, alkalinity, magnesium, and trace elements are necessary for proper health. Regular testing and dosing of levels are imperative for long-term success.
