This Open Brain Coral, Trachyphyllia geoffroyi, is one of the most stunning and accessible examples of LPS brain coral throughout the aquarium trade. Unsurprisingly, given its name, the Trachyphyllia geoffroyi resembles an open brain with its various tissues and colorations exposed. This hardy coral can live for very long periods of time - not uncommon for 15+ years. It is a photosynthetic coral but will readily take direct feeding of meaty foods. It is recommended to be placed towards the bottom of your tank, have moderate waterflow, and moderate to high levels of light. Overall the Trachyphyllia geoffroyi is one of the best LPS corals for beginners and experts alike due to its relative ease of care and visual aesthetic qualities.
