Description
The Lobophyllia Brain Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral often referred to as a Lobed or Meat Coral. It has fleshy polyps that hide its calcareous skeleton. It is found in a variety of textures and color forms. Some are smooth, while others are pimply, and look like carpet. Colors vary from bright red, green, orange, gray, tan, or brown.

Its behavior is semi-aggressive and it will sting other corals with its extended sweeper tentacles during the night. Provide plenty of space between it and other neighboring corals. It is easy to maintain in the reef aquarium, making it an excellent candidate for reef keepers of any skill level. It requires moderate to strong lighting combined with a moderate water movement within the aquarium. Calcium, Alkalinity, and Magnesium levels are critical to its long-term success.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides the majority of its nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. It will also benefit from additional food in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp fed in the evening when its tentacles are visible.
