The Candy Button Coral (a.k.a. Candy Cane Coral, Caulastrea sp.) is an LPS with big, fleshy polyps. These are fast-growing and robust corals that benefit from feeding. This variety has a red exterior and a bright green mouth in each polyp, making an eye-catching pattern as it grows into a colony.
This is a hardy coral and a great addition to any reef tank. It will thrive in a wide range of conditions, but does best with moderate flow and light, and plenty of nutrients.
The frag you purchase will come from the same lineage as the image shown, and will be similar in size, with 2 or 3 heads. However, because of natural variation among frags yours may not look identical to this image.
Like all hard corals, this requires overnight shipping.

It’s not everywhere where they are showing one head on a coral, but send you one with three heads. Happy camper
