GEOTHERMAL AQUACULTURE RESEARCH FOUNDATION
This week we will be sharing information about the Lemnalia group of corals. We hope you enjoy this new project.

This image shows three corals from the group Nephtheidae. The bottom coral is a beautiful Dendronephthya that has grown very well in this reef. The upper coral in the right corner of the image is a small Capnella that is often called Kenya tree coral.

GEOTHERMAL AQUACULTURE RESEARCH FOUNDATION

This Capnella is one of the fastest growing soft corals that we have in our collection. Branches that are removed from this coral with a pair of scissors can attach to small pieces of gravel in less than twenty-four hours. Once this coral has made an attachment it starts to grow a immediately, and it is very rare for this coral to attach to more than one rock or shell. Other types of soft corals such as Sarcophytons will attach to several different pieces of rock, but Capnella do not seem to waste any energy making multiple attachments.

The beautiful golden yellow soft coral in the center of this picture has characteristics of both Lemnalia and Neospogodes. Both these types of tree shaped corals can contain zooxanthellae. This beautiful coral is able to produce some of the nutrients that it needs from photosynthesis, but these corals thrive best when they are fed microscopic food such as phytoplankton and rotifers.

Lemnalia and Neospogodes are very easy to propagate using super glue because these corals have sclerites. The super glue secures these corals until they heal and start to grow.

These corals thrive in alternating currents such is that provided by a Sea Swirl wave making device. Alternating currents can also be provided by a simple timer that turns one of the pumps on and off each one half-hour.

Several of these corals have thrived in Sally Jo's third 55 gallon reef for over a year with no alternating currents. All of Sally Jo's reefs have a lot of water movement. It is important to keep the intake of your pumps clean so that you continue to have proper water movement.
