Overview

The Australian Mini Scolymia Coral is a quarter-sized large polyp stony (LPS) coral, notable for its unique coloration and diminutive size. The Australian Mini Scolymia Coral is a round, solitary coral, usually having a single oral opening present in the center, however, multiple openings have been present in some species. The Mini Scolymia Coral is found in many different mottled color forms of dark green, red, or brown with cup, saucer, flat, or dome-shaped variations. It is a semi-aggressive coral and should be provided with plenty of space between itself and other corals because it can expand twice its size during the day.

The Australian Mini Scolymia Coral is fairly easy to maintain in the reef aquarium. It makes an excellent choice for both the beginner and advanced reef aquarist. It requires moderate lighting combined with moderate water movement within the reef aquarium. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. Its feeding tentacles appear during the evening and while exposed, will feed on meaty foods such as micro-plankton or brine shrimp.
