Sinularia Dura - Cabbage leather coral

The Sinularia Brassica looks like one of the most popular and easy corals in our hobby.

It is sometimes mixed up with Sinularia Dura, that looks almost the same , but does not have the signature finger like structures within the “leaves”” that are the main attraction of both Brassica and Dura.
