Hydnophora microconos - This unique variety of Horn coral aquacultured at Biota Palau is neon green with purple polyps giving it a furry appearance.
Hydnophora corals need moderate to high lighting and water flow. It's necessary to maintain stable alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, and trace elements. Be sure to acclimate new coral to bright lighting slowly and carefully. Give this stinging species plenty of room to grow away from other coral. However, it does not tolerate stings from other corals, even more common Hydnophora species.
