The Bubble Coral

Plerogyra spp is commonly found in the marine salt water aquarium trade. Called the 'Grape Corals', the Plerogyra spp. will actually inflate or deflate their water filled vesicles (bubbles) depending on the light available.

The Plerogyra genus comes in branching varieties also. The bubbles on these corals can have little tips on the end. Hence the common name for one of the Bubble Coral's close relatives, the Pearl Coral or Octobubble Coral Plerogyra

All the Grape Corals have lightweight skeletons consisting of short thick stalks topped with corallites. This skeleton is hidden by the oval water filled vesicle bubbles. These bubbles only come out during the day. At night they retract, making way for their tapered feeding tentacles to come out and gather prey. Be cautious, while the bubble do not have toxins, these feeding tentacles are capable of delivering a sting.

The Bubble coral is easy to care for and not too pricey. This makes it a very desirable coral in any of its attractive colors. It comes in shades of bluish green to green, cream, and tan. In the wild, these corals form flat round colony clusters, looking much like clusters of grapes.
