Description

Cyphastrea, from the Faviidae family, are strikingly beautiful large polyped stony corals. Growing in mostly shallow reef environments in the wild, these corals grow unbelievable fast under a wide range of tank conditions. These typically encrusting corals often have a background color that is different than its corallites with a unique grainy tissue growing between the corallites.  Like other corals in the Faviidae family, Cyphastrea polyps come out mainly at night. Its sweeper tentacles may also come out at night and while mainly a passive coral be sure to give Cyphastrea some distance!

This Perseid Cyphastrea, grown at ReefGen’s aquaculture farm, has a bright turquoise background with high contrast pink salmon polyps.
