Blastomussa (Blastomussa sp.), sometimes referred to as Brain coral is a large polyp stony coral that is native to the Indo-Pacific Ocean. Oftentimes they are said to resemble mushrooms from a distance. Place them in an area of the reef tank that will get low to moderate light and moderate water flow. This is a relatively peaceful LPS coral that will do well once established in a tank. They have symbiotic photosynthetic algae which provide them with nutrients, but they can also be target fed using coral food, or a blend of small meaty foods. Prior to adding a Blasto to a tank, make sure to dip it to keep unwanted pests from entering a tank. Acclimating the coral slowly is an important step in the process of helping it to become adjusted to its new lighting and water parameters.
