Yellow Sun Coral

The yellow sun coral, or orange sun coral, is a bright addition to the the aquarium and is best placed on lower live rocks. Similar to dendro coral but a little hardier, the sun coral do not rely on the sun - ironically - so these corals do not need much light to thrive. Sun coral should be fed four times a week. We import our coral from Mexico and the lps sun corals also come in blue and green.
