Brain Corals


Brain corals are apparently named for their superficial alledged resemblence to human brains. I think they're much prettier from the photos I've seen. They are generally large polyp stony corals, mostly living independently on sand bottoms, though some grow to form immense colonies. As a general rule, they do not require the high light such as SPS corals do. I consider most of them fairly easy to keep.
