    Acropora Tenuis

    Acropora Tenuis is a beautiful, albeit "under-appreciated" Stony. It is evenly branched and grows in a cluster form. The most common color variety's are a yellow, cream, or green base with deep blue or rose tips or just completely green.

    Lighting Requirements: HIGH.

    Metal Halide or maybe high wattage T5 lighting.

    Flow requirements : MODERATE TO HIGH

    I feel that flow is JUST AS IMPORTANT (maybe more) as lighting when it comes to keeping SPS corals healthy. With this particular coral (or ANY SPS coral for that matter) you want a strong, but indirect flow.

    Water Parameters :EXCELLENT / STABLE

    Salinity 35 ppt
    Calcium 380-450
    Alk 2.5-4.5 m/l or 7-12 dkh
    Mag 1250-1350
    Phosphate <0.03 ppm*
    Nitrates <1.0*

    * standard hobby test kits will read these numbers as 0. Only kits that detect in the lower ranges will provide you with that kind of accuracy.

    Care Level: Moderate

    Temperament: Peaceful

    Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
