Overview

The Wrinkle Leptoseris Coral is a small polyp stony (SPS) coral from the Solomon Islands that is usually found growing from vertical or overhung reef walls. This species grows either in an encrusting or tiered fashion and the coloration ranges from brown to tan and green. Under the right conditions, this is a fast growing species. Although it has short tentacles, it can harm other invertebrates touching it.

Usually SPS corals tend to be more difficult to care compared to LPS corals. Once established, though, the Wrinkle Leptoseris Coral is fairly hardy, but requires a moderate light level and strong random currents within the aquarium. Calcium, strontium, and other trace elements should be added to the water for its continued good health.

It will benefit from additional food in the form of micro-plankton or baby brine shrimp fed in the evening when its tentacles are visible.
