Umbrella Leather Coral, Sarcophyton sp., makes a great aquarium addition. Its coloration can vary greatly, but mainly encompasses shades of green and yellow, thus its common name. Umbrella Leathers require a high amount of lighting, can be placed at any level of the aquarium, and should do fine with a medium water flow. As it grows, it may encroach upon and damage other corals with which in comes in contact. As with other Leather Corals, the Umbrella Leather will benefit from feedings of supplements designed for filter feeders. Iodine and strontium will help ensure its continued health.
