Gaz - they are correct. There are no true YELLOW pagoda's out there. You might across some that might have a yellow/brownish tint. BUT no true yellow. If it was true yellow, then the coral would have LOST all of it's zooxanthellae.... Which is not a good thing for a coral...

Hi Gaz - no - it will most likely turn yellow'ish-brown... BTW:
They prefer medium water flow, and medium-to-high light... I have one in my tank as well (but the green variant).... Have mine now for about a year....
I think that their scientific name is: turbinaria?
