March 23, 2024
  • 5:49

Aquatics expert Tom Sarac provides an in-depth overview of Mushroom corals! Found in almost all tropical and subtropical oceans, these animals are very closely related to stony corals but can be distinguished by the absence of a stony skeleton. Mushroom corals are hardy, undemanding and suitable for smaller reef tanks, making them a great choice for beginners and experts alike!

Mushroom corals (Corallimorpharia) families and their genera are as follows:
▪ Family Corallimorphidae: Genus Corallimorphus, Genus Corynactis, Genus Paracorynactis
▪ Family Discosomidae: Genus Amplexidiscus, Genus Discosoma, Genus Metarhodactis, Genus Platyzoanthus, Genus Rhodactis
▪ Family Ricordeidae: Genus Ricordea
▪ Family Sideractinidae: Genus Nectactis, Genus Sideractis
