Purple Aussie Blastomussa coral is a Large Polyp Stony (LPS) coral has fleshy polyps that extend from a calcareous skeleton. The Blastomussa coral is considered a good starter coral for new reef-keepers as it is relatively an undemanding coral. This coral has dark purple skirt body and neon light blue center mouth. We have multiple sizes of Blastomussa coral average at approximately 1-1.5″ with 1 head.
Blastomussa are one of the few corals that appreciate very dim light. We have seen them expand better and take on much more vibrant colors under subdued lighting while struggling greatly under bright lights. When overexposed portions of their polyp may become unnaturally inflated or even develop bubbles inside their flesh. If you have a reef tank with modest lighting, Blastomussa may be right up your alley.
Moderate water movement is recommended. Blastomussa do not seem particularly picky on the type of flow they receive. We have kept them in both low and strong flow reef aquariums without significant differences in health.
Like many of our other LPS, we strongly believe that feeding is a major key to the long term success of keeping Blastos. Blastomussa can be fed a mix of meaty foods such as pieces of krill or mysis shrimp.
