Sarcophyton sp. - Aussie Neon Green Leather Coral - 4" WYSIWYG Colony

Details

 The genus Sarcophyton contains over 40 species, each slightly different in appearance. The “Toadstool” forms all have a rounded, cup-like structure at the top of the “trunk”, called the Capitulum, which lends them their distinctive appearance. The capitulum is dotted with little pores that the polyps can retract into for short periods, and they will do this regularly, often shedding a waxy “coat” in the process. If you can, you should remove this substance from the aquarium. If a specimen is in good health, it will generally have polyps extended most of the time. This morph favors high light and moderate to strong water movement, and will grow rapidly, potentially reaching 8-10 inches or more in diameter! Keep this in mind when selecting one!  Most Sarcophyton species produce toxic substances to defend their territory, and adequate space should be provided between them and other corals in the aquarium.
