I was wondering if you had a piece of stag horn coral in it’s natural golden tan color. I’m not a huge fan of all the bright green or deep purple specimens I usually find. Also if you do have the color stag I’m looking for I’m probably not going to be buying it for a couple of years because the tank it’s going to go in is currently somebody else’s, so it’s going to be a long process of getting it to my house and then starting the system back up.

It's difficult to keep in a tank.
Strong light.
Need strong water flow.
It requires ideal calcium, magnesium, strontium for live and requires accurate water testing equipment. mainly white band disease can attack stag horn coral. Always take precaution to prevent disease,
only a expat can keep this type coral in the tank.

I have had an orange antler coral in my tank for 6 months and all seems well. I have a large toadstool leather, a large colony of button polyps and a yellow colony polyp. I have blue mushrooms and a pom pom xenia. I prefer softies, so should I get rid of my antler coral? It is at least 6 inches long and wide and beautiful, but I dont want to injure any of my softies. Advice please!!

"You have the wrong scientific name for this coral. It should be acropora cervicornis."

Editor note: Thank you! We have changed the picture to the correct species.
