Common Name: African Tree

Species Name: Capnella imbricata (Quoy & Gaimard, 1833)

Range: Indian Ocean and the Eastern African coast

Natural Environment: Inhabit coastal shore and reef slope rubble areas experiencing good water movement

General Husbandry: Has a temperature range of 68 to 83�F (20 - 28�C) and believe this was formally called Nephteidae arboreum or Lemnalia africana with its common name being 'African Tree.' It grows similar to Colt Coral, however, has a dry feel to its tissue, not the slimy feel associated with Colt Coral. This photosynthetic coral requires good water quality, medium light and moderate water movement.

As stated at Saltcorner.com, Bob Goeman's web site.. he has an exellent marine anamial library there.. HTH

Did it look like this? This is my yellow/green tree coral. It looks and behaves more like a sinularia than a capnella. The bottom pic is a normal green sinularia coral. ID'ing it will help in giving you care instructions. But, most of these soft branching corals are relatively hardy and easy to care for.

On the home page, under your name should be a drop down box that says change style.
