There are many different species of coral that can be kept in a home aquarium, and the ease of care can vary depending on the specific species and the conditions of the aquarium. Some corals grow like weeds and others are very delicate. We have some suggestions to start you on the path to success. In general, some of the easiest corals to care for in a home aquarium include:
- Mushroom corals: These corals are named for their mushroom-like appearance, and are found in every color of the rainbow. They are hardy and adaptable, and can tolerate a range of aquarium conditions. They typically don't need much light and will reproduce well with favorable water conditions.
- Leather corals: These corals have a flexible, leathery appearance and come in a range of colors, including shades of brown, green, and yellow. They are hardy and adaptable, and can tolerate a range of aquarium conditions. Popular leathers are Toadstools, Kenya trees and Gorgonians.
- Zoanthus corals: These corals are known for their vibrant colors and patterns, which can range from shades of red and orange to blue and green. They are relatively easy to care for, and do not require intense lighting or strong water flow. Some great choices are Zoa, Paly or Button Polyps and Yellow Polyps.
- Xenia corals: These are fast growing and love dirty water, making them a great addition for people starting out in the reefing hobby. Some species also "pulse" by opening and closing their polyps continuously whish is a lot of fun to watch.
- Clove and Star Polyps: These corals are bright and colorful. They look like exploding fireworks that sway in the currents. There are a few different types to choose from with unique color variations.
Overall, the easiest corals to care for in a home aquarium are those that are hardy and adaptable, and can tolerate a range of aquarium conditions.
