Scroll coral (Turbinaria reniformis)
The Tubinaria, is also known as potato chip coral, cup coral, lettuce coral, or cactus coral, is found in Australia, and widespread in the Indian as well as the Pacific Oceans.
It can grow horizontaly or vertically, depending on the way it’s placed. This species is difficult to care for. It grows quickly and needs so space is needed between the tubinaria and other corals.
Provide it modertae to high lighting as well as high flow. Place it in a high part of the aquarium where it will get plenty of nutrients and trace elements.
Scroll corals should also be fed a variety of foods such as oyster feast, live baby brine shrimp, zooplankton and phyloplankton.
