This is a non-photosynthetic filter-feeding animal and requires shaded areas receiving excellent water movement. Requires at least one daily feeding of live and/or preserved commercial phytoplankton and zooplankton products, or that of animal and plant powders that produce suspended products in the bulk water. Even though it prefers somewhat nutrient rich surroundings, it will not tolerate alga growth. Generally, almost all sponges are difficult to maintain long term in captivity without special attention to their individual needs. Should be kept in systems designed to meet its needs, not simply as an addition to a new reef tank or even that of a thriving reef system if its nutritional needs cannot be met. Occasionally stirring of the substrate/sediment/sandbed will also help small particulate matter (detritus) to enter the aquarium's bulk water, somewhat helping to provide some nourishment. Unfortunately heavy feeding sometimes results in unwanted algae growths, therefore, increase filtration measures should be taken shortly after feedings if wanting to maintain most sponges in a healthy condition.
