Favites abdita

There are 2 species of moon coral - favia and favites. Favia has very distinct individual polyps, while those of the favites species seem to run together - the walls are shared. It is sometimes difficult to make a distinction between the two.

Moon coral requires medium to high light and a moderate current.
