Finally, true Efflatournariahas appeared in the aquarium trade, as a maricultured coral in the Diver’s Den no less. Efflatournaria is a genus of soft corals whose name has been misapplied to various corals in the trade in recent years. Xenia, Hetroxenia and Cespitularia have all been misidentified as Efflatournaria at one point or another but these new colonies of ‘Effla’ actually look like the pictures in books and Aldersladum, the newly described genus of soft coral. Now that we have real good card-carrying Efflatournaria available in the trade and we can see how different it looks from all the other Xeniids it’s time to see what this lobe-branched daisy-polyped soft coral can do in an aquarium. The delicate purpley-blue coloration and white centered octocoral polyps looks like it could make for great aquascaping material.
