The Leather Cladiella coral is a wonderful choice for the beginners who are just beginning to add coral to their saltwater aquarium. It is most commonly known by other name such as Blushing Coral, Cladiella Finger Leather Coral, Cauliflower Coral, Young Soft Coral, Young Blushing Finger Leather Coral, Colt Coral and Young Finger Leather Coral. The Leather Cladiella adapts very well and react the best with moderate lighting and water movements. In fact, it is widely known for its adaptable nature. The Leather Cladiella has a white or cream color body with tan or brown polyps with short thick branches. They appear quite bushy when they expand its polyps and lumpy when they are contracted. The Leather Cladiella is aggressive in nature and hence requires an ample amount of space between itself and others in the aquarium. Moreover due to its aggressive nature, they require moderate care. They are relatively hardy and require an ideal temperature of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit and a maintained pH between 8.10-8.40 in a moderate flow of water. The Leather Cladiella gets its nutrition from the photosynthetic activity of the algae, zooxanthellae and alternatively eats other animals carnivorous in its feeding nature. They feed upon acellular marine planktons and other minuscule marine invertebrates such as Mysis Shrimp. Leather Cladiella breeds easily compared to other marine invertebrates. They undergo fragmentation to multiply and can easily be propagated in captivity. They are reef safe and can be placed anywhere in a marine aquarium.
