Symphyllia are found mainly in Western Australia. The thing about Western Australia is that the collection sites can differ from one another substantially when it comes to temperature. Some have suggested that there may be multiple species of Symphyllia, some that are tropical in nature that like temperatures in the 78-80 range and a cooler water variety that likes the temperature closer to 75 degrees or maybe even a bit cooler. It is hard to say which one is which and how adaptable they are to temperature. Some hobbyists struggle with this coral so one possible solution is to lower the temperature slightly in case you got one of the cooler water varieties.
Symphyllia do not require strong lighting and they can be kept under low (30 - 50 par) to medium (50 - 150 par) light.
- Water Flow
Moderate to high water movement is recommended, just be sure to not have them blasted with flow from the same direction constantly.
Symphyllia derive most of their energy from their zooxanthellae, however they do benefit from additional feeding. They tend to be quite picky with food, however we have had success with Brightwell Reef Blizzard and mysis shrimp.
- Water Parameters
This is a general guideline, Symphyllia are rather sensitive to these parameters, especially to sudden changes or swings. It is ideal to keep all these parameters within range as they will change with time, due its nature as an LPS. A good guideline will be to target stable parameters as long as they are within a reasonable range.
