Comments: S.P.S. are generally more challenging than most corals. They do not tolerate change as well as other species (temperature, lighting, water quality). They need high light and high flow to do well. On the flip side, they offer some of the most amazing colors and shapes, thus are highly sought after by most reef keepers.
