WYSIWYG red and green Trachyphyllia. This coral has a very unique pattern with a bright red outline fading into a beautiful green/blue. This interesting coloration would make a lovely addition to any reef tank! It is a fairly easy coral to care for as well and is super fun to feed!
Will receive the exact coral in the photograph, about 3" in length
Scientific Name: Trachyphyllia geoffroyi
Common Names: Brain Crater, Open Brain Coral
Care Level: Easy
Origin / Habitat: Australia
Temperament / Behavior: It is not an outwardly aggressive coral, but as with most coral, can sting its tank mates if too close
Food: As with many of our available coral, the symbiotic zooxanthellae will sustain them. However, they will benefit from spot feeding and love micro-plankton or brine shrimp.
Light: These corals will do best with low to moderate lighting
Water Movement: This variety prefers a low flow area, you want just enough current to keep its tissues clean of detritus. But blast it with too much current, and you can expect it to remain tightly contracted.
