Heliopora coerulea commonly known as Blue Ridge coral is a great aquarium coral for anyone with a healthy reef tank. While it has a very hard skeleton it is actually an octocoral. Most animals which are considered octocorals are considered "soft" corals.

This species is also unique because of its blue colored skeleton and its ability to "shed" similar to Toadstool leather corals (Sarcophyton sp.). The unique colony shape, ever changing texture (when polyps are extended or retracted or if the animal is shedding), and its unique story make this an odd ball aquarium animal.



Like all the corals currently listed from TerraReef, this specimen is an aquacultured coral.

It is very important that you are aware of the care requirements of these corals before ordering. Please take some time to read some information from a few sources.

This item is a "stock item" meaning the coral you receive may not be the exact one in the picture, but a clone similar in appearance. Sometimes we include images of our mother colonies as well to give an idea of what the corals will grow into under proper care. Approximate size range may also vary between individual specimens.
