WYSWYG Super Rare Gold Indo Stereonephthya, Soft Coral, Leather Tree Coral:
This is an exceedingly rare gold Indonesian stereoneptheya with gold polyps is a soft coral 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 gold does not need any type of special light to bring out the gold coloration. It is 100% photosynthetic.
.For optimal color display 15k or higher with actinic (blue) is recommended.
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.
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.
