Red Brain Coral is also known as Red Crater Coral or Open Red Brain due to the inset ridges that create this coral's scalloped rim. Scientifically known as Trachyphyllia geoffroyi, the Red Brain Coral is most often recognized by its luminescent red and green glow under a medium-to-high level of actinic lighting. It will sometimes sting adjacent corals, if it can reach them. Requiring a medium water flow, it is perfectly content resting on the bottom of the home aquarium. As with most other members of Large Polyp Stonys, maintaining proper calcium and strontium levels is an important key to successful development. Any zooanthellic food designed for scallops or other filter feeders will also help ensure long-term success and overall health.
