你是否是珊瑚缸新手玩家?是否在寻找你能饲养的第一颗珊瑚?如果是,那么软珊瑚将是你最好的选择。它们非常漂亮,而且非常容易饲养。


 

软珊瑚是软珊瑚目下的一群物种,不同于石珊瑚目下的石珊瑚,顾名思义,软珊瑚具有柔软的躯体。当然,你可能会看到棘叶珊瑚,并认为它也是一种软珊瑚。

 

不同于石珊瑚,软珊瑚无法建造珊瑚礁,也无法在体内形成骨架,不过经科学家研究发现,软珊瑚在建造珊瑚礁所做的贡献远远大于我们的想象,其实,软珊瑚底部有骨架作为支撑。

 

软珊瑚以其窈窕灵活的身姿获得了大量的珊瑚饲养者的喜爱,像闪千手的触手还会抓来抓去,如果你在斐济潜水的话,你还可以看到壮丽的鸡冠珊瑚群。

 

大部分软珊瑚喜欢中弱光,如果你珊瑚缸的光线太强烈,最好把它们放置在珊瑚缸底,当然,如果你有一台调光器,你也可以把它们放在珊瑚缸中最顶层。


 

由于软珊瑚对水质波动的接受程度比石珊瑚更强,因此很适合新手饲养。软珊瑚喜欢吃东西,因此,把他们放在你珊瑚缸比较的地方更好。

 

软珊瑚喜欢缓和的水流,这能给它们提供稳定大量的食物,如果水流太强,会阻碍它们的触手伸展。

 

与其他珊瑚一样,软珊瑚所需盐度在1.0251.035之间,最佳温度为22摄氏度到24摄氏度,软珊瑚分光合作用珊瑚和非光合作用珊瑚,而非光合作用珊瑚,比如鸡冠珊瑚,饲养难度很大。


 

软珊瑚更喜欢稍高一点的营养盐,新开缸的高营养盐环境更适合他们生长,一旦提供了适宜的环境,它们生长极为迅速,很快能占领你的缸。因此,你需要非常小心以免某颗软珊瑚疯狂生长,反而对其他珊瑚造成危害。

 

任何人都可以照顾软珊瑚,它们是你开始珊瑚之旅途冒险的第一步。饲养软珊瑚不需要太多的维护,它们生长速度很快,而且它们都很美。


 

原文:

Are you just getting started on your first saltwater aquarium and looking to dive into your first corals? If so, soft corals are an excellent group of corals that are easy to care for and are pleasing to the eye.

 

Soft corals are in the order Alcyonacea which differ from the stony corals in the order Scleractinia. Obviously, soft corals are soft; however, you may look at an Acanthophyllia and assume that is a soft coral as well.

 

Unlike other corals, most soft corals do not build the reef or produce an internal skeleton; although, scientists have realized they contribute to reef building more than what was previously thought. Instead soft corals have small needle support structures called sclerites.

 

Soft corals are flexible and bend with the current giving them a flowing appearance that reefers love. Some even pulse such as Xenia and if you have ever SCUBA dived in places like Fiji, you have seen the stunning fields of Dendronephthya.

 

Most Soft corals prefer moderate light in aquariums. They can be placed at the bottom of your tank if you have powerful lights or if you have dimmer lights they can even be placed at the top of your tank.

 

They are much more tolerant of chemistry swings in your water parameters than stony corals which is why they are considered beginner corals. Soft corals also enjoy a bit of food so if your tank is somewhat on the dirty side that’s ok.

 

Moderate to low flow is best for these types of corals. A moderate current provides circulation for food to be swept across the corals but it is not too strong that it prevents the corals from opening.

 

Like other corals, soft corals need a salinity of 1.025 or 35 ppt and a temperature of 72- 76 degrees Fahrenheit (22- 24 degrees Celsius). Keep in mind that these are the requirements for photosynthetic soft corals and non-photosynthetic soft corals like Dendronepthya are much more difficult than almost any other coral.

 

Soft corals actually seem to benefit from slightly higher nutrient levels, like those found in reef tanks that are just starting up. So with the right conditions, soft corals will grow exceedingly fast and before you know it your tank will be littered with them. So be careful and do not let one get out of hand as it can grow on top of other corals and sometimes certain species of soft corals can be considered pests.

 

Anyone can take care of soft corals and they are the first step to starting your reefing adventures. Soft corals do not require much maintenance, they are fast growers, and they come in numerous assortments of textures and colors.
