The Superman Mushroom coral is a notable colour variety of Rhodactis Mushroom coral featuring a striking red and blue colour combination that radiates in an alternating pattern from the center. This vibrantly coloured Rhodactis Mushroom coral can grow over four inches in diameter making it a showy addition to your reef aquarium landscape.
Similar in needs as other mushroom corals, the Superman Mushroom coral is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium, preferring a mature system with low light levels combined with low to medium water movement. The Superman Mushroom coral is fairly forgiving when it comes to water quality, tolerating slight fluctuations, but always strive to maintain high overall aquarium water quality. The Superman Mushroom is semi-aggressive and requires adequate space between itself and other corals. It reproduces through longitudinal fission.
The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within the Superman Mushroom coral satisfies the majority of its nutritional requirements from the light-driven process of photosynthesis. The Superman Mushroom coral also feeds on other nutrients and particulate matter and benefits from additional food in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp fed to each polyp of the colony.
