Rainbow Stylophora

The body of this stylophora is fantastically bright - bright, rich fuchsia with a halo of translucent greenish polyps giving it movement.

By stylo standards, it’s not a fast grower. The branches are dense and grow close together in a very tight pattern. That means (a) it’s a very good looking coral and (b) it is hard to cut a bigger frag off of.

Stylos seem very forgiving about light, but keeping this one up high in the tank seems to bring out more dramatic colors.

Here are photos of the mother colony for reference:
