This species is easy to keep and adaptable, making it good for beginners. It prefers moderate to high lighting and moderate, varied water flow. Toadstools are peaceful, but allelopathic, so take care to give them enough space so they aren't too close to neighboring corals. These corals can grow quite large, making an impressive centerpiece for a larger aquarium. If you have a nano aquarium, these corals are very easy to cut and prune as needed.
Please note, young frags may have shorter polyps. They will lengthen as the colony matures.
