The Platygyra brain corals form huge coral colonies that are either flat or dome shaped. The coral have corallite walls that polyps share which twist and turn to give it a maze look.
The Maze Brain coral has a moderate to easy care level but is not as hardy as other brain corals in the Favites and Goniastrea genera. They are more likely to bleach and have tissue loss but once conditions become favorable the tissue can recover the skeleton very quickly. Proper current to the Platygyra coral seems to be more important than proper lighting. Too low of a current will not allow the coral to feed and stay clean of waste. A moderately strong current that does not blast the coral is preferred. The coral can grow quite large and may want to be considered when placing the coral in the aquarium.
Lighting for the Maze Brain coral should be moderate. Lower lighting can be tolerated if the current is good but the brain coral will not grow very fast. An example of lighting that has worked very well for the Platygyra coral is under being placed in an aquarium that is 27 inches deep, off center from 400w metal halide lights that are 16 inches above the water line, and the coral being placed on the bottom.
