Unless specified as WYSIWYG, the photographs are a representative sample and the product you receive may be slightly different in shape and coloration. Many factors can influence the appearance of corals such as stressful events like shipping, lighting changes, intensity, spectrum, water chemistry, and overall nutrition. Typically speaking if corals lose color during transit they will recover them in a relatively short period in optimal conditions.

MASTER GRADE EXTREMELY RARE COLORATION

Scolymia corals are large polyp stony (LPS) corals. Scolymia corals are round in shape and found in cup, saucer, flat, or dome-shaped variations. They usually have a single oral opening present in the center. Some species may have more than one.  A Scolymia can grow up to 4 inches in diameter. Scolys come in a variety of patterns and vibrant hues, with some corals having a combination of multiple colors. The most prized specimen of Scolymia are the "Master Scolys."  What is a Master Scoly? Expensive, that's what! haha!  And it is purely up to the grower/seller/beholder to determine Master status. While there is no specific standard, the general rule seems to be this: A Master Scoly will have 4 or more colors present and/or have exceptionally intricate patterns comprised of at least 3 vibrant colors. The Scolymia coral has many names: "Doughnut coral," "Scoly," "Disk coral," "Artichoke coral," "Button coral," etc. But this coral's actual name - at this moment - is Homophyllia australis or Australis. I understand that basically all reef keepers are still calling them "Scolymia," so for the love of the hobby, that's what I'm calling them in this guide.
