Favia sp. - The Biota Metallic Favia frag comes from cultured coral not taken from the reef. This Favia is a type of large polyp stony coral that will benefit from stable alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, and trace elements in the water. It prefers moderate water flow and light, and it does well in the lower sections of well-lit tanks. Use care when acclimating it to your lighting.
This hardy species is a good choice for beginners who have a stable environment and water parameters. This coral will quickly encrust over any rock or adjacent surface.
