Overview

The Green Favia Brain Coral is a lovely green color variety of the popular large polyp stony (LPS) coral often referred to as Moon, Pineapple, Brain, Closed Brain, Star, Worm, or Honeycomb Coral. Favia Brain Corals are the most common and prolific coral in the world, and are very similar to the genus (Favites) sharing many of the same common names, and are sometimes being very difficult to differentiate. Favia Corals are found in various color forms and polyp shapes. "Pineapple Coral" is the name commonly given to those that have smaller circular patterns.

Care of the Green Favia Brain Coral is relatively easy, making them excellent choices for the beginner to expert hobbyist. The Green Favia Brain Coral requires moderate lighting achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs or the more intense metal halides combined with moderate water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, the Green Favia Brain Coral will benefit from the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, magnesium and trace elements to the water column.

The Green Favia Brain Coral satisfies the majority of its nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. However, it will benefit from supplemental feedings in the form of micro-plankton or baby brine, fed twice per week in the evening while its tentacles are visible.

The Green Favia Brain Coral is aggressive, expanding its sweeper tentacles at night well beyond the base. It is important to leave space between the Green Brain Coral and neighbors in the reef aquarium.
