The Leather - Tree Colored Green sheds before it gets acclimatized in the tank. It is not at all an alarming situation, but rather a natural process that they go through. The Leather - Tree Colored Green periodically slough-off a thin top layer of tissues. After its shedding, it may remain closed for several weeks at a time, but will reopen bigger and more beautiful than ever. The Leather - Tree Colored Green propagates easily and is recommended for intermediate to experienced aquarists. It requires medium to high lighting requirements combined with medium to strong water movement. For its robust health, additions of iodine, strontium, and other elements are required. The Leather - Tree Colored Green can be cultured easily by cutting a piece of crown and holding it between two small pieces of live rock using a rubber band. It needs more space as it grows, and has to be kept at a distance from other corals. The Leather - Tree Colored Green undergoes photosynthesis and acquires its food using light energy, which is manufactured by the zooxanthellae that dwells inside its tissue.

.Leather Corals live in the shallow waters of Tropical Seas & Oceans in all parts of the world, and inhabit Reef Slopes and Lagoons. Leathers will go through a phase when they shrink their Polyps, and secrete a layer of mucus on their body, to be shed later. The mucus coat prevents any algal growth on Leather Corals. Moderate flow must be provided to help them shed this mucus layer or it can suffocate the coral.Leather Corals are moderately hardy creatures, which make them interesting additions to your tank due to their unique fleshy body and colors, especially Browns and Grays. Leather Corals do not have an exoskeleton and their skin has a tough, leathery touch.These easy to care for corals are great for the beginner and do not require high lighting. They do need moderate light and moderate flow.
