Pocillopora are small polyp stony (SPS) corals in the Pocilloporidae family. Sometimes called "Cat's Paw," Pocillopora grows out in thick branches with blunt ends. When its polyps are fully extended, this coral can appear very fuzzy. Pocillopora corals can be found in shades of green, brown, orange, purple, pink, magenta, and red. Considered a great beginner SPS coral, Pocillopora are known to be one of the more hardy SPS varieties.
