The Frogspawn coral is a large polyp stony (LPS), that offers a very unique shape and color. The polyps remain visible throughout both the day and night, resembling a mass of fish eggs or frog eggs, hence its name! Frogspawn are considered one of the easier corals of the Euphyllia family and need moderate lighting and low-medium flow to fully extend! Frogspawn typically come in green, purple, or blue! Leave space in between your Frogspawn coral because it can release stinger tentacles during the night time damaging any near by corals!
