The Kenya Tree Coral, also referred to as a Cauliflower Soft Coral, Nephthea, or Nephthya, is similar to the members of both the Litophytonand Nephthea genera. It lives in a wide range of the Indo-Pacific. It has a thick trunk, like a tree, and many branches giving it an arboreal appearance.

It is not normally considered a threat to hard corals, but may itself be disturbed by their presence. The Kenya Tree Coral relies less on the symbiotic algae within it, and depends more on obtaining outside food. Microplankton, marine snow, and dissolved materials should make up the bulk of its diet.

Customer Testimonials

Joe Kalarchik Butte , MT

This excellent coral grows very fast. I have had mine for 18 months; it is so full and bushy that I can't see the base once it opens during the day. Mine got so bushy that appendages broke off and are now growing in different parts of my tank. Very easy to reattach in other areas of the tank.
