An rare morph of the classic toadstool leather with bright green polyps instead of the usual brown or white ones. 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 bright green polyps.

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

How long we've kept this coral: 6 years.

Tips

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

    First timer

    Recived on agreed day, well boxed and packaged with heat pad etc. Included with clear instructions for acclimatisation which was easy to follow and seemed to make the coral happy. It's now been in for a few days but still shy! Would purchase more of this as the colour is great in white and blue lighting

        Great!

        I was pleasantly surprised at the size of these 'frags' to the point I wouldn't call them frags! Very healthy. Love my 'Green Leather Toadstool' All very happy and about to be moved to their final place in my tank Will be coming back again to Captive Ocean

          Stunning colour

          If you always thought softies were boreing and beige,take a look at this beauty, every bit as beautiful as its picture. Settled in well in less than 24hours.
