ORA Neon Green Sinularia
Because they’re so darn hardy and fast-growing, tank-propagated Sinularia Finger Leather Corals are not at all rare in the reef aquarium trade. However, the ORA Neon Green Sinularia Finger Leather Coral is a certainly harder to find strain. It is quite attractive, having an intense neon green color instead of the usual light brown.
It has a nice tree-like form. Its entire body inflates or deflates with its “mood,” often for days at a time. This isn’t necessarily a sign of unhealthiness and may indicate a period of rapid growth. While shrunken, it might retract its polyps and develop a waxy film. Good flow helps to ensure that this film is shed so that the coral can open up again.
As is so often the case, aquacultured specimens of this species are even easier to maintain in captivity. In fact, it is a good choice for novice reefkeepers.
The ORA Neon Green Sinularia tolerates most reef aquarium lighting. It doesn’t tend to change color much under different lights but does seem to inflate less under very bright lights. Perhaps best of all, it is quite easy to propagate. This is as simple as cutting off a branch and securing it to a small piece of rock with monofilament line.
The ORA Neon Green Sinularia can be placed at all tank heights under medium-high light levels and moderate water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Neon Green Sinularia
Grown under captive conditions, captive-bred livestock offers several significant advantages over its wild counterparts. It tends to be more disease resistant and harbors fewer pests. It is better capable of handling shipping/acclimation stress and therefore is specially adapted to living in an aquarium. By purchasing captive-bred Sinularia, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable!
