Red Blastomussa Wellsi

This Blastomussa wellsi has a clean red body. We have farmed this strain for quite a while. This WYSIWYG frag is a single large polyp.

Blastomussa Coral Care

Blastomussa are an interesting stony coral because from afar they resemble mushroom corallimorphs. They are a relatively easy coral to care for with modest requirements for both flow and light. In fact, we have found they tend to do best in low light conditions. They are also easy to feed and later propagate making them a great choice for reef aquarists looking to try some of the more exotic large polyp stony corals. Please see below for additional care tips for Blastomussa as well as checking out our Top 5 Tips for setting up a reef.


Blastomussa are one of the few corals that appreciate very dim light. We have seen them expand better and take on much more vibrant colors under subdued lighting while struggling greatly under bright lights. When overexposed portions of their polyp may become unnaturally inflated or even develop bubbles inside their flesh. If you have a reef tank with modest lighting, Blastomussa may be right up your alley.

Low Light

Low light translates to about 30-50 PAR

Medium Light

Medium Light is between 50-150 PAR

High Light

High Light is anything over 150 PAR

Lighting is a loaded topic, so for a more in-depth discussion of lighting, please see our Deep Dive article.

Water Flow

Moderate water movement is recommended. Blastomussa do not seem particularly picky on the type of flow they receive. We have kept them in both low and strong flow reef aquariums without significant differences in health.


Like many of our other LPS, we strongly believe that feeding is a major key to the long term success of keeping Blastos. Blastomussa can be fed a mix of meaty foods such as pieces of krill or mysis shrimp.


In terms of propagation, Blastomussa have been successfully fragmented and are an excellent candidate for aquaculture.


Proper acclimation is extremely important considering the stress imposed on the animals by the shipping process. Please take a moment to review our Acclimation Guide
