The Biota Aquacultured Fuzzy Fat Finger Coral is sometimes referred to as Sinularia Coral, Finger Leather, or Trough Corals. They are found in various shades of green and brown with green polyps. It is difficult to identify many species because they all have the similar appearance of a mushroom or toadstool, each with a distinct stalk and capitulum (cap). As they grow older, they develop a folded appearance.

This sought-after coral originates from the Island of Palau and is infrequently seen in Palau’s natural reefs. Thanks to the folks at Biota, the aquacultured and coveted Fuzzy Fat Finger Coral is available for aquarists to enjoy in their home marine aquarium.

The Biota Aquacultured Fuzzy Fat Finger Coral is 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. The Sinularia Leather Corals from Indonesia are easy to maintain in the reef aquarium and make an excellent coral for the beginning through expert reef aquarist. 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 branches 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 normally shipped attached to a small piece of live rock or rubble.
