Size Shipped: 2-3"

Notes: Stable water quality and alkalinity seem to ensure best health and fastest growth.
This rare and beautiful heirloom soft coral is a non-pulsing relative of Xenia gifted to us from the aquarium of author Tony Vargas. It is a beautiful crystalline purple/blue color that really pops when seen top down through the water or illuminated by a camera flash. There is some confusion as to whether this soft coral is Cespitularia or Efflatounaria. Its growth form is considerably more robust and seems to spread more quickly than our Crystal Blue Cespitularia.
