|The words “Chalice corals” represent a variety of corals in the Pectiniidae family. These include Echinophyllia, Echinopora, Echinomorpha, Oxypora, Mycedium, Pectinia, and Physophyllia. Chalices are large polyp stony (LPS) corals. They have an encrusting base but grow forming little cups. Chalice corals appear in a variety of colors and patterns. Caring for Chalice corals is relatively easy, making them an excellent choice for both beginner and expert Reef Chasers. They require low to moderate lighting. We recommend 75-100 PAR. Bear in mind that most corals can be gradually adapted to lighting conditions outside of their normal preferences. Chalice corals also prefer moderate water movement.
