One of the few grafted corals in the hobby. Streaks of teal grow throughout a the peppermint red body. The teal that streak through the white polyps leave a blue polyp coloration instead. We have found that both the red and teal colors can be grown independently. If you're looking for more of one color, you can frag the color needed and have it grow on another side of the coral.

Best tried after you've had success with a few other easier corals first and have an understanding of basic reef chemistry such as keeping salinity, alkalinity, calicium, and magnesium levels consistent. The coral itself is very easy to care for if you test for your parameters often and have created a consistent maintanence routine for your reef!
A great grower! Increased growth with feeding such as Benepets.
