An attractive toadstool leather with polyps that sway in the current. One of the first corals we kept this is a very easy going coral that grows well under good conditions reaching a large size over time. Like all leather corals flow is as important as lighting as it needs good flow to help it shed a waxy film as it grows. Leather corals will contract greatly when shedding or under stress.

The body of the coral is tan with yellow polyps.

Frags are 3 to 4 cm in diameter when expanded and are grown on a fragstone.

How long we've kept this coral: 21 years.


  • Keep this coral in a high flow area but never in the direct path of a pump or powerhead.

        Good Sized Toadstool

        Have not had one of these since my first tank and am really pleased with the one you supplied. It's not sulking at all and the polyps/tentacles are showing already. Am looking forward to watching this grow 😀
