    Finally, true Efflatournariahas appeared in the aquarium trade, as a maricultured coral in the Diver’s Den no less.*Efflatournaria*is a genus of soft corals whose name has been misapplied to various corals in the trade in recent years. Xenia, Hetroxenia*and Cespitularia*have all been misidentified as Efflatournaria*at one point or another but these new colonies of ‘Effla’ actually look like the pictures in books and Aldersladum,*the newly described genus of soft coral. Now that we have real good card-carrying Efflatournaria*available in the trade and we can see how different it looks from all the other Xeniids it’s time to see what this lobe-branched daisy-polyped soft coral can do in an aquarium. The delicate purpley-blue coloration and white centered octocoral polyps looks like it could make for great aquascaping material.
