    2011 brought us a ton of new reef fish species and although coral species and new aquairum strains come about at a crawling pace, this year was an exceptionally good one for a broad range of corals of all types. From new species of corals that are we’ve yet to see because they’ve just been discovered and described to new collecting locations for familiar species, the abundance of new corals just goes to show that there us still a lot of excitement left for coral aquarists. Let’s see which ten corals really got a lot of discussions going in 2011.
