Colonial Leather Coral, Sinularia dura, is very hardy, tolerating a wide range of water conditions. It is typically pink or orange colored and forms colonies of fungus shaped lobes. Tiny polyps emerge on the edges of the ruffled lobes. Detached pieces will quickly attach to solid surfaces.

This coral is usually most successful in an aquarium with moderate to low lighting with supplements of invertebrate food like Marine Snow, Microvert or Zoo-plex. They will filter these particles out of the water for nutrition as well as absorb nutrition directly from the water through their tissue. Sinularia dura is one of the hardiest leather corals for home aquarists.

Acclimate leather corals like these slowly to avoid collapse and mortality of the colony. A slow drip acclimation is best. Place the colony in an area with moderate to high flow to help slough off shedding skin.
