Stylocoeniella is a colorful and captivating SPS coral that can bring drama and beauty to most any aquarium.
This encrusting coral is often described as a cross between montipora and psammacora.
It’s a fairly hardy SPS coral that does best in low to medium lighting and medium to high flow.
Where it differs from montipora and psammacora is in its polyps. They are a bit longer and often extend 3-4 mm beyond the base. This allows the polyps to move around in the flow a little. It’s a bit like watching ripples move across the top of a pond.
It does best when place in the lower half of the tank.
And it comes in a dazzling array of colors. Some of the most common are green, red, and orange.
