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 bright fluorescent red strain of Discosoma. Its screaming bright red under blue lights, but even in the whites this keeps its red color.
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. They grow to 1-2 inches in a mature polyp.
