Sarcophyton sp. - The White Polyp Toadstool leather coral is the classic toadstool that is hardy and easy to keep in home aquariums. The tips of the polyps are bright, and the elegant, thin polyps protrude from the base of the body. The polyp color varies from white to bright green.
Toadstools get their name from their unique form - a wide top on a narrow stalk similar to terrestrial mushrooms. Create a fairy forest of toadstools in your aquarium with our variety of toadstool corals.
Most toadstool leather corals are tan or blandly colored, but this is a special variety aquacultured for its beautiful coloration.
This species is incredibly easy to keep and adaptable, making it great for beginners. Its beauty also makes it interesting for advanced reefers. 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 grow quickly and 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.
