Australian Metallic Green Crown Leather Coral - 4 Inches


This Australian crown leather has bright metallic green polyps. It is 4 inches long and growing on small live rock. 

Some of the common names for Sarcophyton corals are Mushroom, Leather, or Trough Corals. Leather corals are commonly found on reef flats and in lagoons and are in various shades colors. Culturing of the colony is often accomplished by taking a slice of the coral by dividing it across the length and across the top like a pie and attaching that piece to live rock.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides a majority of its nutritional needs and does not need to be fed.
