Featured Coral of the Week – 10/5/2015 UC Mohawk Paly

UC Mohawk Paly

UC Mohawk Paly

 The Unique Corals UC Mohawk Palythoa originated as a wild colony collected off the coast of the Indonesian island of Bali.  Unique Corals obtained this exotic Paly over a year ago and they have been growing it out in one of their raceway systems to frag out and sell.  This coral is currently being grown under LED Lighting and it’s provided with Triton Base Elementz and AcroPower Amino Acids to achieve faster growth rates.

“Palythoa sp. – “Mohawk” Paly- Stock Frag – A beautiful Paly with a stunning color combination, crazy-looking center, and great morphology. Hardy and very different than many other morphs that you’ll see, it’s an excellent addition to any collection and a real fast grower.”

  • CARE LEVEL:  Easy
  • TEMPERAMENT: Peaceful
  • PLACEMENT: On Rockwork or Rubble
  • WATER MOVEMENT: Moderate
  • LIGHTING:  Moderate

HUSBANDRY NOTES:  Unique Corals keeps its Palys under LED’s (About 20 or so inches off the water surface), and they feed their systems regularly with fine-particle-size-foods. This species of Palythoa reproduces rapidly in proper conditions, and it will spread easily in moderate flow areas of your reef.

If you have stopped by to see what Unique Corals has on their website then we suggest you do so.  They have a vast collection of hundreds of SPS, LPS and Soft Corals available at any given time.
