One of our more oddball/ unique Blastomussa Merletti morphs in our farm, LC Depth Charge Blastomussa Merletti has an irridescent aqua-blue center with purple toned rims. The polyps on this Merletti tend to stay rather small. Our LC Depth Charge Blastomussa Merletti has been in our farm for over a year now and has proven to grow slightly slower than the other Merlettis in our farm (Blue Raven, Magnetos, and Optimus Prime). Because of its slower growth rate, frags are seldomly available.
LC Depth Charge Blastomussa Merletti
Intermediate level coral. 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 easy to care for if you test for these parameters for your reef.
A moderate grower. Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.
Prefers to be kept in lower lighting conditions.
Currently kept under Kessil A360X units. Mounting height 24" above water line. 12:00PM - 10:00PM at 100% blue intensity.
