THE TOP 5 MOST COLORFUL CORALS FOR A SALTWATER TANK
- Pillar Coral – This type of coral grows upward from the sea floor without any secondary branching. Pillar corals can grow up to 8 feet tall, growing on both flat and sloping sea floors.
- Staghorn Coral – This is a branching type of coral that forms cylindrical branches that range from a few inches to over 6 ½ feet in length. These are one of the fastest growing corals and they are generally found in Caribbean waters.
- Table Coral – These corals belong to the same branching type of coral as staghorn corals but they grow in large, flat plates. Table corals are usually dull green or brown in color and many reef fish take shelter under their plates.
- Brain Coral – This type of coral is so named because it has a spherical shape with a grooved surface. These corals can live for 900 years or more and colonies can grow up to 6 feet high.
