WYSIWYG High Yellow Vietnam Stereonephthya, Soft Coral, Tree Coral:
High yellow ( ie lots of yellow) stereoneptheya with pink polyps is a relatively rare soft coral that few people have seen. It is sometimes called nephthya or nephthea and is in the nephtheidea family of arboreum (tree like) coral. This is not a Kenya tree (capnella)but a far more elegant and rare coral with beautiful interlacing sclerites (small fibers within the stalk and limbs). Stereonephthya has nearly transparent stalks. That combined with the visible sclerites it takes on a stained glass appearance. This yellow tree coral does not need any type of special light to bring out the gold coloration. It is 100% photosynthetic.
Stereonephthya is not an aggressive coral and will not over run your tank like some capnella species. It tends to be a low growing coral and very bush like.
One very unique attribute with this coral is the polyps will pulse at random times.
Photographed under FHO 10k, 15k, and actinic. No editing or filters have been used.
While this coral should do fine with priority shipping I do strongly recommend overnight.
Purchase over 250.00 receive free shipping upgraded shipping.
In the event of DOA you need to contact me within two hours of delivery. Photos will be required.
Stereonephthya will completely deflate in shipping or even your aquarium and appear dead. As long as the coral is not falling apart it will fluff up with if a couple days.
