    Sinularia dura or Cabbage soft Leather Coral

    common, hobby name = Cabbage soft Leather Coral

    Nice to have, in terms of slower growing habit, lower to the substrate/rock it's attached to.
    They can even be a pale green,blue-grey or even close to purplish pale pink, or mostly tan/beige.

    Concerns are:
    Moderate, medium bright lighting according to general reef levels.

    Brisk flow across it's surface.
    It can slime up and affect coral downstream of itself.

    It DOES NOT have much texture, nor polyps visible.That is NORMAL, no worries there.
    Acting as "umbrella, ella ella ey ey":smilielol5:
    shading, and flow dissipation it will cause the higher up it is placed.

    Very, very far from being rare, it’s bloody common, and a tiny little frag size piece like that should have cost no more that R50. It’s a great begins coral though as it's tough as nails.
