"Shaggy couch Pavona coral"
This coral was originally received by a local fish store around 2008 as an unlabeled wild specimen. Back in 2011, we were uncertain which species of coral this was, so we created this video:
While Pavona is not a very difficult work to pronounce this coral has several common names including, "Potato chip coral", "Cactus Corals", "Lettuce Coral", and "Leaf Coral".
Like all the corals currently listed from TerraReef, this specimen is an aquacultured coral.
It is very important that you are aware of the care requirements of these corals before ordering. Please take some time to read some information from a few sources.
This item is a "stock item" meaning the coral you receive may not be the exact one in the picture, but a clone similar in appearance. Sometimes we include images of our mother colonies as well to give an idea of what the corals will grow into under proper care. Approximate size range may also vary between individual specimens.
