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.
