    Difficulty Level: Not beginner corals, but they are still pretty tolerant. Pectinia corals have extreme frail skeletons and should be handled with care.

    Feeding: Most pectinia corals feed at night with small feeder tentacles though some may have long sweepers. Small suspension particles should be supplied.

    Lighting (Level 2 to 6): These are very adaptable to different lighting conditions though some of the best colors may be seen at lower levels. Take extreme care when acclimating them to higher lighting.

    Water flow: Gentle alternating flow is best to keep these corals clear of debris.

    Placement: Some pectinia corals can be extremely aggressive so plenty of space if needed.

    General: Members of this family have the ability to produce large amounts of mucus. Be sure you have adequate filtration and plenty of carbon in the system to cope with it.

    Internal structures make this one of the weirdest corals to frag although, in my experience, they are very sturdy and heal well after cutting.
