One of the most unique Discosoma mushrooms that we have in the farm. Streaks of black along a spacey-purple body, with stunning small bubbles that follow along those lines. The bubbles reminds us of small little nebulas or rain drops. The polyps on this mushroom grow rather large, reaching about 2" across before dropping babies. We first imported this mushroom in early 2019 and have great success getting it used to captivity. All LC Dark Nebula Discosomas purchased will be from natural splits and not cuttings.
Discosomas tend to reproduce by leaving a piece of their tissue from their foot behind. The small fragment will then develop into another adult over time. The first photo is a great example, as you can see a small baby forming on the top right!
Stock frags are made to order. Heal time is around 1-2 weeks.
LC Dark Nebula Discosoma
Great beginner coral! Does not consume elements such as alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium readily. A great choice if you're looking to keep a low maintenance reef or are just getting into the hobby and haven't built a strong understanding of the hobby yet.
Slow. Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.
Prefers to be kept in lower light.
Currently kept under Kessil 360x, all blue spectrum.
Prefers low flow. Too strong of a flow may cause it to deattach.
Currently kept with Maxspect Gyre 350s Pumps.
