Sarcophyton sp. - This elegant Weeping Willow Toadstool mushroom leather coral is hardy, colorful, and moves mesmerizingly in the flow. This variety is truly an odd-ball among toadstool corals. Under first glance the polyps can become so long that that are mistaken for a torch coral. If you suddenly cut the flow the polyps drape down giving them the appearance of a weeping willow tree.
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.
