I like to think I’ve seen my fair share of disc and fungiid corals, I was alone in my appreciation of Lithophyllon in the early 2000s and I’ve got Sandalolitha frags out in the wild that are going on 14 years old.
The point is I always scope out the disc and related corals everywhere I travel and I think I’ve racked up some coral-scouting hours. I’ve seen a good share of orange and green, green and orange disc corals, but darned if I can’t recall ever seeing a green cycloseris with red markings like this one.
There might be a little bit of color correction applied to this coral to achieve proper white balance but that red rim with flickers of red flames on a forrest green background is really something special. Whatever shop ends up getting this piece from Eye Catching Coral is going to be in for quite a treat!
