The ORA Fuzzy Lobophytum leather coral is not just a great coral for the entry level aquarist, it adds incredible texture to any mixed reef aquascape. Its densely packed polyps give each finger-like branch a soft, feathery appearance. Tolerant of a wide range of aquarium conditions, this fast growing and easy to care for coral can completely retract its polyps giving it a smooth, glossy form.

It is important to give corals their own space in the aquarium. We recommend giving them at least 2-3+ inches of their own space so they do not sting or irritate other corals. This will also give them room to grow in the aquarium.

This coral variety is peaceful and considered safe with our larger species (not Dwarf seahorses) of seahorses. 

Like our captive bred seahorses, we recommend using RODI water when mixing your saltwater. Corals can be sensitive to improper water quality. We recommend the same water parameters we do for our captive bred seahorses and fish.

Please note: Coral color and appearance varies. Differences in light, glass, water parameters, and many other factors can influence how a coral appears so it may appear different in your aquarium. Many coral species will "close up" during shipping and can take a day or up to a week or more to open. This is normal and expected when you receive them.
