Turbinaria frondens - Yellow Cup

Turbinaria peltata - Cup

Cup Coral requires mid to high light and a medium water current. It can easily be confused with goniopora species, but the cup coral does not require feeding like goniopora does. A cup coral's entire skeleton is covered with a skin like tissue with raised corallites from which the polyps emerge.
