Our LC Blue Magma Favites is a gorgeous favites that changes its look overtime. We originally picked this up from an Indonesion shipment many years ago for its striking blue and green eyed contrast. At the time, the red ring was very faint and we weren't sure it would stay.
Over the years we've noticed that it has a very dynamic growth coloration. The faint red ring has become a bright crimson color and stays with the favites as it grows larger. New eye development on the red ring start off as a sunny yellow and as the coral expands outwards taking the red ring with it, the yellow eyes turn into a brilliant green. We recommend growing this coral on either a larger disk or a more flat piece of rock so the growth pattern can be observed.
LC Blue Magma Favites, WYSIWYG
Best tried after you've had success with a few other easier corals first and have an understanding of basic reef chemistry such as keeping salinity, alkalinity, calicium, and magnesium levels consistent. The coral itself is very easy to care for if you test for your parameters often and have created a consistent maintanence routine for your reef!
