Hi guys,
I'm got to get a Kenia tree tomorrow, but i first want to know the whats and the hows...

Colt Coral


1. Medium Low to High, very adaptable.
2. No feeding required

Kenya trees are probably one of the easiest soft corals to keep.
1) They don't skin like other tree types.
2) They can take a variation of flow but preferably not being blasted.
3) They are very adaptable to lighting
4) No specific feeding required.
5) They don't "fight" chemicaly with other corals but do fight for light.
6) Extreemly fast growing.
7) Don't require prestine water but not poor water either.
8) They are suseptable to being stung by candies, ric's etc.
I had 2 pieces in my tank about 2 yrs ago and MadGerman and myself have fragged them as they were initially about 15cm by 10cm and they ended up being almost a meter square worth of fraggs, they actually look very cool in MadGerman's tank - almost like a forest of trees.
