Rare Japanese Green Sarcophyton Leather Coral - 1 Inch

You will love this Japanese green leather coral with large green polyps. The size is approx. 1 inch when fully expanded. It is growing on a frag plug. It is happy with a variety of lighting. This live coral grows at a moderate rate for a leather coral.

Some of the common names Sarcophyton coral is Mushroom leather, Leather, or Trough Coral. Leather corals are commonly found on reef flats and in lagoons and are in various shades colors with the most colorful being from Tonga and Fiji.

The leather Corals are a non-aggressive coral but adequate space should be provided between them and other corals in the reef aquarium that are more aggressive.

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.
