Overview

The Cauliflower Colt Coral is also referred to as Colt Coral, Soft Finger Leather Coral, Seamans Hands Coral, or Blushing Coral. It is very difficult to identify an exact species because there is so much variation of shape and color within each.

It is slippery to the touch, encrusting, and usually has small colonies. Members of the Cladiella genus generally have shorter "fingers." It is an aggressive coral and needs space between others and itself in the reef aquarium.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides the majority of its nutritional needs from the light driven process of photosynthesis. It will also benefit from additional food such as micro-plankton, baby brine shrimp, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.
