One of the easier to maintain hard corals, Purple Fungia is one of the harder to find color forms. Fungia can thrive in a wide range of conditions. Acclimates best in low water flow and indirect lighting, they can adapt to a wide variety of conditions. Best placed on sand bottoms, rather than on rocks, as the tissue is easily damaged by rubbing against rocks. Fungia is nearly identical to the plate coral, but without tentacles.
