Lobophytum Leather Corals are commonly known in the reef aquarium hobby as a Devil's Hand Leather. As they grow, the coral grows thick lobes out of their crown giving them a very distinctive appearance. Their colors range from a yellowish tan to a lime green color. Like most leathers, Lobophytum will close once every couple weeks to a month and develop a film covering that eventually gets shed off. This is to help the coral combat algae that can sometimes grow on them. In summary, Lobophytum Leather Corals make a great addition to soft coral aquariums and are one of the most hardy corals available to the beginning reef hobbyist.
