This is a classic reef aquarium soft coral. Capnella is a short branched soft coral having a tan base and darker well extended brown polyps with white stripes, also commonly known as the Kenya tree.  Structure resembles that of a hard coral as it stands erect, but when agitated the polyps will retract and the body will fall limp. This is a great coral for beginners and tends to be a fast grower in most aquariums.

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.
