Rainbow Fuego Chalice are predominantly colored pink and blue with a yellowish orange mouth. The color of their mouth usually has a different color from their fleshy body.
The ‘Rainbow Fuego’ chalice coral is a truly spectacular colony of Echinophyllia echinoporoides found in the waters of the Indo-Pacific Ocean. In general, species of Echinophyllia has an encrusting growth where their colonies can form folds or cups, that will grow and encrust to any surface, including the aquarium glass.
It is recommended adding Rainbow Fuego Chalice to an established reef tank. Like most Chalice Echinophyllia family, it will require moderate lighting and low to moderate waterflow. If they are exposed to strong waterflow, their tentacles wiill not go out, which in turn, will deprive them from feeding.
Proper spacing must also be maintained with regards to nearby corals. The Rainbow Fuego Chalice are equipped with sweeper tentacles, where it can extend, invade and sting nearby corals.
Diet & Nutrition: The Rainbow Fuego Chalice gets much of its nutrition from the symbiotic zooxanthellae living within their tissues. However, we still recommend you do supplemental feeding by adding mysis and brine shrimp.
