live coral Green Pocillopora damicornis Frag 1,5”"coralSLover":
The Green Pocillopora is a fast-growing branching SPS that is great for those just getting into SPS reefs.High lighting tends to bring out the best coloration in Pocillopora. We have kept them under lower light conditions and they do quite well in terms of growth and polyp extension, but under brighter lighting this coral develops brighter coloration. Pocillopora may require a longer acclimation period to intense lighting such as metal halides and LED’s.Strong water movement is recommended. Pocillopora are commonly found in the wild in very strong surge zones.
Disclaimer:Corals on the pictures are not WYSEWYG,photos was made underdifferent lighting (blue or white lights) and in different tank (our show of frag tanks). You will get coralsize asdescribed, shape and color could beslightly off due to shipping stress.

The proper acclimation of a new arrival is extremely important considering the amount of stress the coral has endured before arriving at your door. We recommend that the following procedure be followed immediately upon receipt of the livestock. The entire process is actually very simple and should take less than half an hour to complete.Step 1: Turn the Aquarium Lights OFFThe livestock has been in complete darkness for the last day, and will not immediately adjust to high output aquarium lighting. By turning off the lights, you remove a possible source of stress for the new arrival. Overexposure to light in general can be an issue with new additions to your reef tank. It only takes a day or two under high light conditions to severely damage a coral that was grown under more modest illumination.Step 2: Empty the containers into a slightly larger tubTypically we use a small plastic tub to acclimate the new corals. If you like, you can empty the containers with the coral into separate tubs, however when we receive new corals, we tend to place them in the same tub. The purpose of this is to provide enough volume to add in water from the aquarium as well as prepare a pest control dip solution.
Step 3: Add 1/2 cup of Aquarium Waterevery few minutesThe slower you add the water the better. Corals and other invertebrates are sensitive to fluctuations in pH and especially salinity. Some aquarists prefer drip acclimating corals making this process even more gradual, but one should consider the temperature drop-off that occurs during this time as well. The entire acclimation process should not take more than 30 minutes.
Step 4 (optional): Pest Control DipHere at coralSLover we advocate using pest control dips to reduce the risk of hitchhikers and parasites making it into your aquariums. We dip our corals often, even when moving corals between systems, but there is no guarantee that the threat is eliminated. The two types of dip used most often isCoral Rx for pests such as flatworms and nudibranchs andLugol’s Iodinefor bacterial infections.
Step 5: Release the specimen into the tankFind a suitable location where the new coral will receive the appropriate flow and lower light. It will need a few days to adjust to the new lighting.If you have access to a quarantine system, we recommend using the above method to first acclimate the new arrival. After the quarantine period is over, repeat the procedure to introduce the specimen into the display tank.
