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.
 
 
 
 
 

Red Eye XL Favia Frag
AQUACULTURED

APPROX SIZE: 2" FRAG

Favia corals are large polyp stony (LPS) corals. They have an encrusting base but usually grow forming a dome-shape. Favia corals are also known as "brain corals" or "closed brain corals." The corallites of the Favia coral form their own individual walls. You should be able to see the groove in-between the 2 individual walls of a Favia coral. Sometimes this can make it hard to distinguish between a Favia coral and a Favites coral. (They look and are very similar, but Favites corals will have one fused/shared wall instead of the two distinct walls.)  We allow some grace in the identification of these corals as it can be very hard to determine in smaller specimens. They both require similar care, so it's okay if you aren't 100% which type you have right away. Favia corals appear in a variety of colors and patterns.
