Warty corallimorphs, Discosoma sanctithomae, are an
interesting corallimorph that seem to be a cross between a ricordea and
a discosoma mushroom.  They come
is a variety of shades of green, blue, and sometimes red, and have differing
colors and types of tentacles. We have a limited number of the bright red color
morph, which may in fact be a different species of Discosoma.

 

All of the corallimorphs we sell are extremely hardy and are
great for any level of reef keeper, from the novice to the pros.  They are primarily photosynthetic, but
should be fed some sort of supplemental planktonic foods.  In the wild they eat the organic dust and
silt that settles on them, so when feeding them, dust them with food.

 

The two species of anemone shrimp from the Caribbean, Periclimenes
yucatan and Periclimenes pedersoni, will readily take up residence
on these discosoma polyps and provide an interesting show in your tank

 

These are loose polyps and are not attached to any
significant amount of substrate.  They
will eventually attach to any clean substrate in your tank, or you can epoxy or
superglue them to what ever you want.

 

As with all corallimorphs, anemones, zoanthids, and
corals, be careful handling them in and out of the water.  They produce stinging cells that can sting
your hands and irritate your eyes, so use gloves if you’re sensitive to their
sting, and don’t let the mucus get in your eyes.

 

 

Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.
