The Pleurogyra turbida previously described Nemenzophyllia turbida is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral. This unique looking coral is commonly refereed to as Fox Coral, Jasmine Coral, or Ridge Coral. Its calcareous skeleton is very fragile and needs extra care when placing it between rocks in the reef aquarium. It is a peaceful coral that lacks visible tentacles during both day and night. Its polyps are white to pale green and are quite large, extending two to three times the width of its skeleton during the day.
The Pleurogyra Fox Coral is an easy coral to maintain, making itself a great candidate for the beginning through seasoned reef aquarist. It requires moderate lighting combined with low water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. It will also benefit from additional food fed weekly in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp.
