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 hardy and colorful strain of Discosoma. Its covered with distinctive spots all over the polyp. Most of these are grass green, but at the very edge there is a ring of bright yellow-orange spots. Green mushrooms are a dime a dozen but this this is absolutely unique.
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.
