Platygyras are a type of closed brain coral, they are one of the brain corals that are relatively hardier. It is a good beginner coral for individuals who have yet to keep any large polyp stony (LPS) corals. This platygyra has a green rim and a white/blue center.
Low to medium (50-150 par) is recommended.
Medium flow indirect flow will be sufficient and ensures no detritus build up occurs.
Platygyras will benefit from feeding, its overall tissue mass will increase in size and its colour will be more vibrant.
This is a general guideline. Platygyras are tolerable of slightly high nitrates, high phosphate levels will inhibit coral calcification, preventing growth. A good guideline will be to target stable parameters as long as they are within a reasonable range.
