Description

Description 
Unlike most other  corals which are colonies of small polyps, most mushroom corals are a single giant polyp.
Typically they stick to a rock singly or in colony of 5 , 10 ,15 and 20 polyps
Mushroom corals have variable colours, often the mouth is the most strikingly colored. In some, the tissue around the mouth is banded.
A young mushroom coral starts life attached to a surface, and looks like a tiny stalked mushroom. In many species, as the coral matures eventually breaks away from the stalk and lives life as an adult attached to the bottom. Mushroom are very hardy in reef aquarium,
spreading over empty space and multiply by budding small ones next to it . It clean water by filtering aquarium water and absorbing
the nutrient , the center tiny mouth will open when suitable food fall on them.
