Trachyphyllia geoffroyi

This Red Open Brain coral was acquired in January of 1999. 

Open Brain corals enjoy medium light and light to medium water flow.   They are a very hardy and fairly easy coral to keep.  I have this one placed halfway up in the tank and it expands tremendously.  I occasionally feed it a piece of fish or shrimp.

Open Brain corals have a conical base as opposed to Flat Brains.  The Red Open Brain requires less light than the Green Open Brain.

Also - note the green button polyp in the photo.  This was a hitchhiker on my live rock and remained solitary for 2 years.  It has suddenly starting multiplying and within a week, 5 buds had formed!
