Green Finger Leather Coral
Green Finger Leather Coral, Sinularia sp., brings depth to the aquascape of the home aquarium.
Leather Corals are generally very hardy and will thrive in a properly maintained reef aquarium.
Most need a moderate to strong water flow and tend to do very well under various types of reef tank fluorescent lighting.
Metal halides are not needed.
They are also easy to propagate in captivity by simply cutting them into coral frags.
Although the leather coral seeks it's nutritional needs from more than one place, its main source of energy comes from the minute algae zooxanthellae which supplies the coral with a steady stream of energy and nutrients.
A secondary food source comes from the micro plankton and other filtered foods that the leather coral traps in its tentacles during ocean waves and currents.
In the reef aquarium, the addition of bottled trace elements such as iodine and strontium should supplement the water to ensure good health.
