overview
The Green Polyp Leather Coral is referred to as Sarcophyton Coral, Mushroom, Leather, or Trough Corals. This particular strain has a cream colored base with bright green polyps. As they grow older, they develop a folded appearance.

The Green Polyp Leather Corals are relatively peaceful, but adequate space should be provided between them and other corals in the reef aquarium. Some can produce toxins which are harmful to other reef inhabitants. Toadstool Mushroom Leather Corals require medium to high lighting combined with medium to strong water movement. For continued good health, they will also require the addition of iodine, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

Culturing by the experienced hobbyist is often accomplished by cutting off a portion of the coral's crown and attaching that piece to live rock or placing it in the sandy bottom of the reef aquarium.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides the majority of its nutritional needs from the light driven process of photosynthesis. It will also benefit from additional food such as micro-plankton, baby brine shrimp, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.

It is shipped attached to a small piece of rock.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1" to 2"
