Encrusting Sponges are peaceful species for the aquarium, and should not be kept next to other more aggressive species that may encroach on its territory and harm it.

You can place this coral anywhere in the aquarium as long as both its waterflow and lighting requirements. These coral can be a bit difficult to care for and should only be kept by the experienced aquarium owner.
