Photo of the Week - Cynarina lacrymalis

Button corals are hardy, unique additions to any reef tank. Because the large fleshy mantle can be damaged on rock, care must be taken to place in an area where full extension won't be inhibited. This is a coral that doesn't need a lot of light or flow. On the other hand, they will eat a surprising amount of small chopped meaty foods like Krill or Chopped Prawn. They will extend polyps at night, not unlike those seen in Scolymia.
