Leather Corals for the Reef Aquarium

The aquarist graduating from fish to invertebrates, to full-blown-reef enthusiast, finds leather corals often the best choice for beginner reef aquariums. They have few simple requirements and require minimal care. With a tough leathery skin, they are found in all sorts of beautiful shapes and colors. Leather corals can be very interesting in the reef aquarium. They will change shape expanding and deflating their body along with extending their tentacles and suddenly retracting their tentacles. Many leather coral species are easy to keep with great success. As a matter of fact, a huge number of advanced reef keepers also love to keep soft corals, as they provide a great visual balance for many reef tanks.
