Building and maintaining an SPS (Small Polyp Stony) coral-dominated reef aquarium requires specialized equipment to ensure the health and growth of the corals. SPS corals are more sensitive to environmental changes compared to LPS and soft corals making it all that more important to use reliable life support equipment that you can count on. Their requirements for lighting, flow, and nutrients are what makes them challenging and the right gear plays a pivotal role in the longevity of the coral ecosystem, ensuring your precious SPS corals can grow into thriving colonies and ultimately achieve that impressive display of colors.
