Pavona Coral (Pavona decussatus)

Lightning: Moderate to High
Water Flow: Strong
Tank Placement: All
Notes: The Pavona Coral is a small polyp stony (SPS) coral, and is also known as the Cactus, Potato Chip, or Lettuce Coral. Its common name "cactus," comes from its appearance which resembles that of a cactus. These corals form thin plates as branches that are covered with polyps giving it a fuzzy appearance.
Pavona Coral is fairly hardy but requires a moderate to high light level and strong random currents within the aquarium.
