出于各种原因,脑珊瑚是珊瑚饲养爱好者喜欢饲养的一种LPS珊瑚,这种珊瑚颜色绚丽多彩,造型千变万化,容易饲养,耐活,通过状态能反应出珊瑚缸的当前状况,当它们被照顾的很好的时候,它们绝不吝啬展现自己美妙的身姿。

 

这类脑珊瑚过去被分类为Acanthastrea属,广泛分布于印度洋-太平洋地区,特别是在澳大利亚沿海岸尤其丰富,由于我们在澳洲认识了各种各样的脑珊瑚,以至于在印度洋太平洋的其他的确我们也能一眼分辨出这类脑珊瑚。

 

 

今天我们所展示的脑珊瑚是来自日本的名叫“coral monster”的鱼店,其中有一小部分脑珊瑚是向越南进口。从越南进口珊瑚似乎有点在法律边缘试探,不过这没关系,今天我们可不是为了做违法调查员来的,纯粹为了欣赏这些惊艳绝伦的脑珊瑚。

 

 

无论这些珊瑚是来自越南,还是印度尼西亚,还是其他什么地方,有一点的是可以确定的,那就是他们非常的漂亮,而且繁殖出了与澳洲脑珊瑚不尽相同的个体。

Lord corals are some of the reef aquarium hobby’s favorite group of LPS for many very good reasons; they are colorful, have crazy patterns, they are hardy, they grow well, and they are very responsive to aquarium conditions and will show it when they are being well cared for.

 

Micromussa lordhowensis, formerly classified as an Acanthastrea species are also very widespread throughout the Indo-Pacific with excetional abundance and diversity on both coasts of Australia in particular. We’ve seen so many Aussie lord corals that it’s easy to spot colonies and strains that are either from Indonesia or ‘elsewhere’.

 

Today’s feature is a showcase of Micro Lords from ‘Asian Islands’ being offered for sale by Japan’s Coral Monster. There’s been a small amount of similar Micro Lords very occasionally exported from Vietnam – there’s some ambiguity as to their legality to be exported but we’re not here to sleuth the law, only to appreciate some beautiful & novel colors of this now classic aquarium coral.

 

Whether these lords came from Vietnam, or are part of a trickle from Malaysia or elsewhere one thing is sure – these are some beautiful and very different looking strains of Micromussa lordhowensis from their Australian counterparts.
