If you are refering to the cabbage leather coral (Sinularia dura
), they are fairly easy to keep. Good water flow and moderate to high lighting. It will do fine a mid depth or higher with PC
depending on what you have. With MH
I would place it near the bottom. No special feeding or additives required.
If you mean the SPS
variety Pachyseris speciosa
, they would require stronger light but if you had about 4x65w PC
or higher on the 36 gal
it should do fine if placed in the top Â½ of the tank as well as somewhere with high (but not direct) water flow. Keep in mind with this one you will also need to keep up with the chemistry alot more. These types of corals are often much faster growing than most typical branching SPS
and will suck up the CaCO3
fairly quickly. I would also suggest the tank be on or about 1 yr matured for best results.
