Cynarina cf. lacrymalis is probably a species of its own, so far known as Acanthophyllia deshayesiana, but this is a synonym for Cynarina lacrymalis.

Cynarina cf. lacrymalis should be provided with adequate spacing to other corals because it can expand to twice its size but is it not aggressive. It is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium and makes an excellent choice for both the beginner or advanced reef aquarist. It requires a medium light level combined with a low water movement within the aquarium. The best place for the Cynarina is on the ground of the aquarium.. For continued good health, it should be fed meaty foods such as micro-plankton or brine shrimp at night.

Habe 2 dieser schönen Tiere.
Wenn die KH unter 6 fällt, entfallten sich die Tiere nicht mehr... sobald die KH dann wieder zwischen 7 - 10 ist sind die Tiere wieder "aufgepflustert.

Best Fishes!

Pflege seit einigen Monaten ein leuchtend orange-rotes Exemplar dieser tollen Koralle. Sie steht am Boden, unter HQ in mittelstarker Strömung. Sobald das Licht angeht bläst sie sich auf das 2-3 fache ihrer Korallitengröße auf. Gegen Ende der Beleuchtungsphase fährt sie zusätzlich noch ihren Tentakelkranz zum Planktonfang aus. Ein sehr unkomplizierter und zu empfehlender Pflegling.
