Mushroom corals are some of the toughest soft corals in the hobby, and a great choice for starter corals. They also add a spot of color to low light areas in mature reefs.
This is a colorful and fast-growing strain of Rhodactis. It has a fluorescent green base covered with hairy purple tentacles. It’s brighter than this similar variety that I also sometimes have in stock. This color combination remains eye-catching under white lights or blues. It grows fast, so plan for this when you place it in your tank.
The mushroom you purchase will come from the same lineage as the image shown, but because of natural variation yours may not look identical to this image. Each polyp (mushroom) is approximately 1″ when fully inflated, but they may appear smaller on arrival due to shipping stress.
