Compared to the more well known LC Blue Raven, our LC Optimus Prime Blastomussa is a Merletti with a deeper blue colored center and red skirts. It sports a lovely green mouth just like its cousin and is just as easy to grow. It'll make an outstanding addition to any reef tank, especially in nano reefs where tank space is limited.

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.
