Sarcophyton sp. - The Mountain Dew Toadstool leather coral, much like the drink, has vibrant nuclear green polyps which makes it a sought after soft coral. Most toadstool leather corals are tan or blandly colored, but this is a special variety aquacultured for its absolutely intense green coloration.
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.
This species is incredibly easy to keep and adaptable, making it great 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 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.
