Coral of the Week | Horn Coral

Hydnophora Horn Coral is an SPS coral and like many SPS coral it can be difficult to maintain, but under proper care, it can be a nice addition to larger reef aquariums. Smaller specimens can be kept in smaller reef tanks but beware that it grows fast and is extremely aggressive and will kill most other coral that comes close to it.
