Unique characteristics- This coral is renowned for its unique bubble-like appearance that cluster the hard skeleton. These bulbous structures are fragile and require low flow to fully extend without being damaged. Bubble corals will also extend sweeper tentacles around the bubbles to attack other corals near their base in an effort to keep space clear for them to get enough light. 

Bubble corals range in color from green, white, and purple. The lighting on your reef can change the appearance of the colors significantly.
