overview

Fuzzy Mushroom corals are so named and easily recognized by the fact that the surface of the coral is covered in forked / branching tentacles.

They are typically a shade of green, sometime with other colors mixed in.

These types of mushroom corals are sometimes found in shallow water and like moderate to fairly bright light levels, more so than the more common  types of mushroom corals.  They also prefer a medium water flow.

They are one of the more hardy and easy to maintain corals.  Under ideal conditions, they can multiply and spread fairly rapidly.

Fuzzy Mushroom Corals are photosynthetic and do not require target feeding, but they will feed on small filter feeder type foods in the water column if they are present and will also take larger meaty foods if offered.

Photo Notes We want you to be happy with the coral that you receive and we take pride in the corals that we offer.  To provide true representation of the color and health for our WYSIWYG corals, they are photographed and white balanced under the ReefCorner LED lighting at approximately a 10K to 14K white point to best show the actual color of the coral. The coloration may vary when viewed under different lighting.  The grid the coral is typically photographed on is approximately 0.6" per square to give you a size reference.
Naming Notes We identify the scientific name when we are able to with some degree of accuracy. You will notice that we don’t give our corals cool names like “AWESOME ULTRA SUPER METALLIC NEON RED AND SCREAMING LIME GREEN ULTRA ULTRA COLORED AUSSIE” unless it is a name in common usage in the hobby that helps to identify the coral. We let our pictures do the talking and you can be the judge of whether our corals are awesome or not.
