How to Care for Vivid's Hawaiian Punch Tenuis Coral

written by Dave Burr

Vivid's Hawaiian Punch Tenuis is a must have tenuis!  Those red polyps glow so bright!!  We consider this a slightly easier tenuis to grow, it acclimates well to new tanks and holds color well.  Once this coral gets growing watch out!  It might just be hot enough to make your water boil!  Most tenuis corals are considered expert level corals and are recommended for expert level hobbyists.

Placement: Mount Vivid's Hawaiian Punch Tenuis Coral using IC gel glue, or putty, on an exposed rock or ledge in the aquarium where it will receive direct flow and light. This coral grows outward like a table. Give it space to "encrust" and it will grow into a beautiful showpiece.
