They come in a vast array of colors including, but not not limited to, purple, green, brown, red, orange, silver, pink, yellow, and mixtures of the above. They are often found in groups in the wild and are often climbing over each other.

Feeding: These animals benifit from, but don’t nessarily require, target feeding.

Special Notes: Hobbyist are often told to never remove sick or seemingly dead corals from the aquarium. The reason behind this is because they are capable of production daughter colonies even after the coral appears to be completely lifeless. The tiniest piece of flesh can generate miniature replicas which, when mature enough, will be severed from the mother colony and “walk” away.

Scientist have also produces full sized corals from fragmenting single septa from the coral.(septa being the rigid lines which radiate from the center of the coral.) Specimens in captivity kept healthy for extended periods of time can be sliced up into pizza like sections and can recover into a full circle.
