Sehr schnellwüchsige Koralle, welche je nach Nährstoffkonzentration des Wassers in der Färbung von dunkelgrün bis hellgelb variieren kann.Markante Wuchsform, hebt sich dadurch schön von anderen Korallen ab.Allerdings ist sie die zerbrechlichste Steinkoralle die ich kenne, bricht schon beim hinsehen...Trotzdem ein tolles Tier!
