A very beautiful coral that grows surprisingly quickly for a Favites especially when well fed. It grows by encrusting over rockwork. An easy coral to feed that will grab passing food as it extends it's feeding tentacles taking on an almost fluffy appearance. War corals are capable of producing sweeper tentacles that can damage nearby corals so it should be kept a small distance away from them.
This particular morph has a deep red colour with contrasting bright flourescent green centers and should be kept in lower light levels as it can be bleached by strong lighting.
Frags will be actively encrusting and about 3cm in size.
How long we've kept this coral: 11 years.

“Just received this item and I have to say very impressed with the service and the quality of the coral. Had very good instructions with the delivery also. The only negative comment for me would be the price of postage which I thought was pretty expensive when you compare to some other on-line companies”
