Anything neon, rainbow, or glowing. Bioluminescence is fascinating.There are many reasons to love coral! Reasons like...they are living animals, they grow in your house, they vary is size, shape growth pattern etc. But one of the things we love most about coral is the COLOR aspect! A few of you don't care that much about color but I would imagine that an overwhelming majority care an awful lot about the color of the coral they add to their reef tank! So let's chit chat about it today!
1. What coral do you think has the BEST overall color or color combo in the reef aquarium hobby? (use common names)
2. What is your favorite color when it comes to coral in your reef tank?

I can certainly appreciate someone who understands the processes that must take place at one point or anotherAlso, I’m slowly enjoying the cyano under whites now!! I hated it under blue lights because it looked so unnatural and was a deep reddish colour, now it’s more brown and looks 10x nicer and more appealing!! I think the uglies are the nicest time in a tank’s life!!
I ordered a white-polyp toadstool from Biota that came entirely snow white but is starting to color up more now after having been in my tank for a few months -- I'm seeing greens/purples/blues starting to come out under the lights. How long has your leather been in your tank?You have a white leather too?! I've been trying to identify what it is exactly, that I purchased. SOLD to me as a Neon green sinularia, mine is completely white, polyps and all.
I have some to give you...reply back to my pages if you are interested.I went other because the more natural the coral’s colour then the more natural the tank!
Here’s my 100% white photos, now it’s at 70% white and 40% blues so photos can be blued out a bit but white still shines and shows their natural colours!!
The tans and browns to me are natural colours, some greens (If they aren’t TOO neon) can be natural too, as seen in my caulerpa macro. Here’s a top down of the R. Yuma in the 40% blues to 70% whites:
The Yuma is about 4” across, maybe 4.5”, for sure the biggest coral I’ve kept from a 0.5” frag (2.5 years ago), the other half to the colony is in the 4’ tank.
Trying to find the BEST coral for colours is hard, here’s my blue mushroom (I want some duller acros that are cheapish and stick to a nice tan or very pale yellow (Like the pavona’s you see).
