Scientific Name: Scolymia australis
Common Names: Button Coral, Doughnut, Scoly, Artichoke, or Disk Coral
Care Level: Easy
Origin / Habitat: Australia
Temperament / Behavior: It is not an outwardly aggressive coral, but should be provided with plenty of space between itself and other corals because it can expand twice its size during the day depending on your tank conditions.
Food: As with many of our available coral, the symbiotic zooxanthellae will sustain them. However, they will benefit from spot feeding and we highly reccomend doing this as they are SO MUCH FUN to feed! They 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, too much flow results in the coral being unable to capture food.
