With bright green polyps and an even brighter green base, this is one devil’s hand coral which nearly all reef tanks could entertain. The base coloration of the green lobophytum can be a rich neon green like the specimen above in bright lighting but in other, dimmer conditions the dark green base helps to bring out the bright colored polyps.
