Large Antozoo hermit, of the order of the Discosomatidi; much colorful and much decorative one comes from the tropical Atlantic ocean, Mar of the Caribbeanses, peninsula of Florida, islands Bermuda and Bahamas; gregario hermit but, shape groups of distinguished individuals the uni from the others.
Sessile and completely lacking in a skeletal support, fixed on an inert support, which one cliff or one madrepora dead woman, by means of a small adhesive disc said foot.

From the part of the short cylindrical body that is found in opposite position to the foot opens the boccale opening, often risen and encircled from a carnoso disc of large dimensions, of extremely variable color: yellow, viola, green or ocher, lacking in tentacles but covered from ribbings and verruche that they render it similar to the hat of a fungus, from which the common name.
Much sturdy one, for being an invertebrate, a lot adapted to the Aquarius of barrier in cohabitation with all the other invertebrates, sessili and not, and of average or small fish largeness, but not with Balistidi or Cantigaster.

It prefers to be arranged in a strongly illuminated and interested place from a sure water current, but if the environmental conditions them they are not perfect does not come any absolutely pregiudicato the maintenance in Aquarius.
Onnivoro, draws its maintenance is from the alghe simbionti, Zooxantelle, than prolificano in the carnoso disc around boccale R-all'.apertura, it is from plancton and small animals captured from the surrounding atmosphere; in Aquarius it appreciate plancton frozen-dry or dept freeze, artemie or chironomus; if much great this antozoo pu to be nourished also with pezzeti of fish or polpa of cozza deposits to you with delicacy over the periorale disc.

Sturdy Antozoo much and easy one to acclimatize itself, do not have particular requirements as far as the chemical and physical values of the water that must be filtered and be only very aereata.
They are however always advisable partial changes with sifonatura of the bottom and regular oligoelement additions and bioelementi.

Not particularly aggressive but however to leave one small distance of rispeto well from other sessili invertebrates that otherwise could come ustionati from the urticanti substances that it emits.
For all these reasons and the fact that a species re-entering in the limitations of import and detainment established from the CITES the Discosoma would not have to never lack are in the Aquarius of invertebrates of the principiante that in that one of devout the expert acquariofilo.
