Bird's Nest Corals (Seriatopora sp.) grow in a colony with thin, pointed (or nearly pointed) branches that grow in random directions to resemble the tangle of twigs of a bird's nest. The polyps on each "branch" grow in rows, a distinguishing characteristic that separates this coral from similar species like Cat's Paw Corals (Stylophora sp.). Color and shape vary, depending on the conditions under which the colony was grown.

These corals grow best under bright lighting and moderate to high flow. Bird's Nest Corals generally do not tolerate fluctuations in water chemistry and should be kept in stable, mature systems. Calcium levels need to be maintained at a fairly consistent level (at least 420ppm) for this coral to maintain its rapid growth rate. This is one of the most popular corals among coral propagators and many varieties of frags are available.
