The Green Toadstool Leather is named due to its resemblance with mushrooms or toadstools, each with a distinct stalk and capitulum. It is relatively peaceful in nature, and should be provided with ample space between it and other corals. The Green Toadstool Leather does not have any hard exoskeleton like large polyped and small polyped stony corals. If the Green Toadstool Leather is provided with ample amount of light, good filtration and moderate flow, it becomes adaptable to aquarium conditions. The Green Toadstool is advised to be used only by the at least intermediate aquarists. The Green Toadstool Leather is very easy to grow and propagate in captivity, and therefore makes a valuable addition to any reef tank. It features a vibrant green color that adds a splash of green into the aquarium. Additional supplements of Iodine, and strontium has been proved beneficial for its growth. The Green Toadstool Leather needs a brightly lit area where it undergoes photosynthesis, and the zooxanthellae living inside their tissue manufactures the food using light energy. But it gets benefit from additional food such as micro-plankton, baby brine shrimp, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. The Toadstool Leather has a unique feature of self cleaning mechanism that keeps out the harmful algae from growing on its surface, and is mainly done at the time of transporting. Often, the Green Toadstool Leather releases toxin in the water that can inhibit the growth of some delicate corals, but a proper chemical filtration can lessen up this effect on hard coral growth. It may remain closed for several weeks and once it gets acclimatized to the environment, it opens up beautifully. It can be visualized best under actinic light, which helps in reflecting the shades of its beautiful green.
