    Common names: Thorn coral

    Difficulty level: Stylocoeniella is a very sensitive SPS coral with stable alkalinity, calcium, nutrient levels and full spectrum lower lighting being a must.

    Feeding: As with most SPS corals, small suspended particulate food will be accepted.

    Lighting: Thorn coral is a semi-cryptic low light coral that seems to need a fuller spectrum. Many times they thrive even in shade or on the back wall of aquariums.

    Waterflow: As with most SPS, higher flow is a must for styloC.

    Placement: They should be placed near the bottom of aquariums on rock that they may encrust and cover. Take care to keep LPS and other more aggressive corals away.

    General: StyloC is another awesome dark zone grower much like cyphastrea. Use it to fill in those blank spots where not even soft coral will grow at the base of your reef.
