Picture of the Week, Rainbow Lobophyllia


Rainbow Lobophyllia

Pictured in this week’s installment of the AquaNerd Picture of the Week is a glowing rainbow Lobophyllia brain coral seen in one of the vendor aquariums at MACNA from earlier this year. The coral has at least four distinct colors, sporting a red ring that surrounds green, then purple, and finally a blue center. Rainbow colored corals are all the rage these days, and their coloration typically drives the price way up. Interestingly though, corals of this color have become increasingly available over the past year especially, showing up in aquarium stores all over the country.
