Favia corals from the Faviidae family are the most common and prolific coral in the world. Often called “Brain Coral” these corals are dome shaped with their walls being one color and their calices being another giving them a brain-like appearance. Favia corals are dominant and aggressive, expanding their sweeper tentacles to defend their position, so be sure to leave at least 5 inches between them and their neighbors. Brain Coral is relatively easy to take care of making them a great large polyped stony coral for beginners and experts alike.
