Favites

This macro shot is of a Favite coral. Growing polyps close to its skeletal structure, each green zone contains a mouth for feeding. When I received this coral, it was at least 50% dead probably from being under PC lighting. Under MH lighting, it rebounded nicely and 75% of the coral recovered with new growth seemingly daily. Other than normal daily feedings to the reef and maintaining good water quality, this Favite required no special care.
