Species Name: Rhodactis indosinensis

Common Name: Elephant Ear Mushroom, Coral Anemone

Range: Central Indo-Pacific Ocean to Australia

Natural Environment: Inhabits reef slopes and reef shallows, sometimes where the nutrient level is more concentrated, i.e., bays, lagoons, and boat channels

General Husbandry: Sometimes called "Elephant Ear Mushroom Corals" because of their larger size. Do well in a temperature range of about 72 - 83ºF (22 - 28ºC). Their low cost and maintenance requirements make them very popular with reef keepers. They can be fed small pieces of fish/shrimp flesh.
