This is the very bright east coral. Leathers can remain closed for long periods of time, taking on a waxy appearance, shrinking, and even shedding their skin as they grow. They do best in moderate to high lighting (PAR 150-250) and flow.Toadstools can be found in many areas of the Indo Pacific but this one has been aquacultured for many many years.
WYSIWYG polyps get very long and brighter green than other green variant toadstools.
