Although the Turbinaria Corals may be bright yellow, green, brown, gray, or cream, the Yellow Polyp Scroll Coral is generally yellow to green. A number of species may extend their polyps during the day or night while in an aquarium.
Turbinaria sp. vary in the amount of care they require. Those that are highly convoluted or thin plates, like this one, require more water flow, but aquacultured pieces like this are relatively hardy and require moderate care level. It is a peaceful reef inhabitant and does not bother other corals that are placed in close proximity to it. However, it should still be provided with ample space away from other corals because it does grow quickly. It will require a medium light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium. For its continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
It will benefit from additional food in the form of micro-plankton or baby brine shrimp.
