Chalice Corals are colorful coral with a heavy tissue matter over its skeleton, and is easy to maintain in a home aquarium. It is a hardy species that will grow in almost any type of light environment but will grow best and have the brightest colors under moderate to high lighting. Caution should be taken when placing Chalice Corals near other corals as it has long sweeper tentacles that may sting them. Chalices can easily be fed meaty foods such as mysis or krill, but will only feed at night.
