Beware of long sweeper tentacles of Galaxea corals
Galaxea are known for their long sweeper tentacles. Therefore, place this coral with plenty of safety distance to neighbouring corals. Strong, laminar and unidirectional currents promote the development of long sweeper tentacles. A position with weak to moderate and ideally turbulent or alternating current is perfect.
