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.
“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”
