LPS Corals

LPS Corals

Large Polyp Stony (LPS) corals generally have a calcium carbonate skeleton with an exposed large soft polyp.  These corals generally prefer lower flow because of the large amount of fleshy tissue that is exposed.  Many LPS species are bottom dwellers preferring the sandy substrate of the ocean floor to that of the reef crest.  They do not require the demanding water or flow parameters of SPS corals so they are relatively easy to keep in comparsion.

These corals benefit greatly from periodic feeding  and are able to capture much larger food particles with their tenticles then SPS corals. These corals do require extra room as many have tentacles that sweep the area surrounding the coral, stinging any intruders that violate their space.  

The three basic growth patterns are plating, branching and LPS that grow in ridges like an open brain.

 



We maintain our coral collection in several different locations to provide redundant sources of our farming stock. As some of these mother colonies have been actively farmed by Your Reef for ten years or more, insuring their long term survival is clearly important to us.  As a result not all items shown as in stock on the website are currently available at our retail location.  If you are planning a trip to our retail store and want a specific piece shown on the site, please order through the website and specify "In Store Pickup" as the delivery method.  Call or email us to determine the best time to visit to pick up your order.
