Cespitularia is a genus of soft corals in the same family as Pulsing Xenia. While these are fast-growing like many soft corals, they’re nowhere near as invasive as Xenia.
This variety shows a range of subtle colors depending on the lighting, including blues and purples. These are not fluorescent, and look best in white light rather than blues.
Unlike many Cespitularia out there, this one actually does pulse slowly like Xenia – just much slower.
These corals prefer low to moderate lighting and flow, with plenty of nutrients. But they are very hardy and can survive in a wide variety of conditions.
The fragment you purchase will look similar to the image shown, but because of natural variation among corals it will not look identical. These are pretty large frags, approximately 2-3″ long with multiple branches. Please note they close up during shipping and may take 2-3 days to fully extend.
