Large Polyped Stony (LPS) corals are distinguished by their hard skeleton. Many of these corals have long sweeper tentacles and therefore care must be taken in their placement within the aquarium. Most LPS corals require good light and water quality - the maintenance of adequate calcium levels is imperative for their growth. Reproduction of LPS corals is normally by budding or spawning.
