These corals are so popular in the hobby due to their stunning coloration and unique patterns. When fully healthy and acclimated they inflate well and their tentacles will be extended often. These corals are fairly resilient and do well under a variety of conditions. Still, an aquarium should be well established before introducing the Micromussa.
Micromussa lordhowensis corals, assigned to the genus Micromussa in 2016, are a species of large polyp stony (LPS) coral in the Lobophylliidae Family. The thick-walled, circular corallites of the Micromussa lordhowensis corals appear joined directly to one another by fused walls. The corallites are irregularly shaped and may be arranged singly or in short valleys with continuous walls. The skeleton is covered with folded, fleshy tissue. The Micromussa lordhowensis can be found in shades of red, orange, purple, blue, and green. Micromussa lordhowensis corals are very popular for their beauty and color variations.
