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 dark purple base covered with big fleshy purple tentacles. Bright fluorescent green streaks radiate from the mouth, a bright contrast on the dark background, and an eye-catching pattern under white lights or blues.
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 1-2″ when fully inflated, but they may appear smaller on arrival due to shipping stress.
