like what you did there!! Hows this?

The Duncan coral is a beautiful, rare and hardy

coral to keep. Although it is very similar to other large polyped stony

corals in terms of tolerance and sensitivity many hobbyists fail to keep

it alive due to its feeding requirements and due to poor water quality. Its

tentacles are always extended, even at night, but if slightly disturbed,

will readily retract them.

Common Name - Duncan, whisker coral, daisy coral

Scientific Name - Duncanopsammia Axifuga

Nutrition - Target feeding is recommended. Mysis shrimp, Cyclopeeze, Cyclops and baby brine shrimps

will help the Duncan coral to thrive.

Behavior - Peaceful

Maintenance and care – Duncan coral is very adaptable to lighting conditions, and prefers gentle

currents in its tank. Preferred placement is on rock but also can be placed on the sand. With good care,

good water quality and with direct feeding the Duncan coral can grow quite fast.

Water Parameters - Temperature: 72F-78F, PH: 8.1-8.4, Specific Gravity: 1.024-1.026

Lighting- Duncan coral also known as Whisker coral do well under most types of light but needs to be

acclimated slowly to intense metal halides.
