Mushrooms - Discosoma, Rhodactis
Easy to keep:
"Disc anemones are perfect for beginners! "
The Discosoma- and Rhodactis disc anemones are given names due to their flat, disc-shaped form of polyps. The polyps often sit close together and press the edge of oral disc: Thus the funnel shape arises for this coral species. The multiplication takes place in the marine aquarium largely asexually, by separating the oral disc (Discosoma) or by separating the segments (Rhodactis)\\n
Ultra colored disc anemones
Discosoma corals have an enormous colour spectrum. The colour of corals ranges from all colours of rainbow till strip-shaped versions. Few Discosoma species have so called ,,Pseudotentacles“ on the edge of oral disc. Discosoma are between 6 and 8 cm long. \\n\\nRhodactis corals have tentacles all over the oral disc and a short foot. Its colour is often a mixture of integrated green and brown. Few disc anemones of class Rhodactis have extraordinary, fluorescent colours. On an average Rhodactis is bigger than Discosoma (upto 10 cm). On our online shop you will regularly find rare and highly sought-after Rhodactis osculifera (Bubble Mushroom).\\n
Feeding the Rhodactis and Discosoma disc anemones
Feeding the Rhodactis and Discosoma disc anemones\\n\\nBoth coral classes pick up dissolved substances from the water but mainly lives on the products of their symbiotic algae. Discosoma are extremely undemanding – they do not need much space and can easily compensate in low lighting. Only a strong water flow should not be flown in.\\n\\nFixing, division and multiplication\\n\\nBoth Discosoma and Rhodactis get separated very quickly. It is sufficient if one removes polyps from substrate rock carefully with the help of a blunt knife and fixes the disc anemone to another substrate by gently pressing (or with the help of a coral glue). Normally disc anemones are sessile. Even then it may occur that the disc anemone shifts. This means that it is not satisfied with the new place. In case of emergency, one can fix it to a suitable location with the help of an injection tubes.
