Pocillopora verrucosa

By: melev | Tags: | Comments: 0

This SPS (small polyped stony) coral is pink Pocillopora - Pocillopora verrucosa. It has done quite well under 165w Power Compact lighting, and doubled in size in 10 months. I feed phytoplankton every other day, which this coral may be feeding upon. When a couple of small spots bleached, I broke them off to protect the health of the rest of the coral. This is not the fuzzy kind (although that could be due to fish nipping at it), but does extend polyps when the lights are off. Also called Cauliflower Coral.
