ORA Capnella Kenya Tree
Some aquarists (especially the relatively inexperienced ones) might feel some comfort in keeping some “run-of-the-mill” corals. These reef tank standards are not only exceptionally easy to keep, but also serve as a low-bar reference in terms of overall aquarium health (for example, if one of these corals is unhealthy, then something is definitely wrong). Plus, some of these common aquarium corals make a tank look more natural (they are generally more common on wild reefs, too). Of all the branchy soft corals, the ORA Capnella Kenya Tree Coral is exemplary in this regard.
This is an especially nice strain of Capnella, too. Sure, it has the usual greenish tan base and darker brown polyps. But its polyps additionally feature tiny, attractive white stripes. While anyone might appreciate this is a great coral, it is particularly well suited for beginners. The ORA Capnella Kenya Tree may be kept at any tank level under medium-high lighting with moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Capnella Kenya Tree
As they are cultured in under aquarium conditions, captive-bred corals offer several advantages over wild-caught specimens. They tend to be more disease resistant, harbor fewer pests. They are also more tolerant of shipping/acclimation stress! By purchasing captive-bred Capnella, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
