The Umbrella Leather, Sarcophyton sp., features a mushroom cup shaped stalk with a curved crown and numerous extending polyps. They have a leathery touch and lack hard exoskeletons. They are best housed with moderate to high lighting and moderate to high waterflow. Sometimes they secrete a toxic fluid so good water filtration is necessary. The Umbrella Leather coral is easy to maintain making it a great choice for beginner and expert aquarists alike.
NOTE: This particular specimen is lacking a stabilizing base. You may easily graft the Umbrella with an existing scleractinia in your tank.
