Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”
Veron, 2000

Characters: Colonies are extremely delicate, usually less than 0.3 metres across, and are composed of small thin unifacial fronds forming whorls. Individual fronds have up to 15 corallites which decrease in size from approximately 6 millimetres diameter near the base to 4 millimetres diameter near the margins. Costae are prominent and radiate from the base to the margins. Corallites are superficial, composed primarily of a few septo-costae and small columellae.

Colour: Pale brown.

Habitat: Sheltered reef slopes with turbid water.

Abundance: Rare.
