Merulina - (Green Lettuce)
Please Call to Order
Small Polyped Stony Coral (SPS)
Does best under a high flow area placed under high light. Metal Halide lighting is strongly recommended for best results.
Convoluted, deep, delicate folds are a trademark feature of this coral. As it grows it will encrust the rock as well as grow out and up. Once acclimated in a good environment is a beautiful coral.
Placement somewhere in your rock work is preferred. Good water flow with this species is essential as detritus and marine snow can settle on it and cause bacterial infections and recession.
The Lettuce coral is almost exclusively imported in varying shades of green. Its appearance is somewhat similar to M. Capricornus tending to have a thicker structure.
Latin Name: Merulina sp.
Size Range: S: 2-3", M: 3.5-4.5", L: 5+"
Care Rating: 6
