Details

Scroll Corals get their name because they often roll onto themselves like a newspaper. Colonies under higher light will generally grow in a more "tightly rolled" or closed cup while lower-light colonies tend to be flatter. They are most commonly yellow, but can also be brown or red. These corals are also commonly known as Cup, Vase and Ruffled Ridge Corals.

Scroll Corals (Turbinaria sp.) are the same genus as Pagoda Corals (Turbinaria peltata). However, they typically have a much different morphology. Scroll Corals will have a very delicate skeletal structure and many small polyps, where Pagoda Corals will have a more substantial skeleton with fewer, larger polyps.

They are relatively hardy corals and are recommended for aquarists of all levels. Place this coral in medium to high light and medium to high water movement. When positioning the coral in the aquarium be sure that it is lying in a way so as not to collect debris on the surface. If debris collects and begins to decay it can easily damage or destroy the coral by causing an infection.

In adding to using the lighting to product food through the algae in its tissue, this coral will also feed on meaty foods like brine shrimp, plankton, Cyclopeeze and similar items. It extends feeding tentacles during the day but can take days to a few weeks to extend their tentacles after being stressed or acclimated to a new environment.
