Description – Distributed across the indo-Pacific, Japan, east china sea and southeast Asia. These stunning corals provide a reef with a variety of coloured tentacles in different shapes and structures. The two structures are wall formations (where the structure expands to longer formations until the separate) and branching structures, where the heads bud off previous heads. There are four forms of Euphyllia traded across the aquarium industry: torches, frogspawn coral, hammer and ancora, all of which come in various structures as previously described. Due to their wonderful tentacle structures that vary species to species, these corals provide reefs much needed flow and movement which truly cannot be beaten by any other corals.
