Cristata Torch Corals (Euphyllia cristata) are similar to the more common Torch Corals (E. glabrescens) but are far less common and have a slightly different appearance. While they also have a branching structure, the skeleton is much more pronounced, especially during the day. During the day, the tentacles are drawn into the base and may appear to be just small nubs. At night, they extend in a pattern that is much more flower-like or firework-like than common Torch Corals although the tentacles are still usually shorter. Cristata Corals are most often purple or green in color.

These corals are aggressive in nature. Their tentacles can extend several inches and have a powerful sting that can damage other specimens. For this reason, they need to be placed far enough away from other corals so as not to cause damage or death to the other corals.

The Torch Coral must be place upright as tissue damage easily leads to the death of individual heads. Polyps are long with a single rounded end, usually extending during the day and retracting somewhat in the evening. This coral should be placed in an area with just enough water movement to gently move the extended polyps.
