Commonly referred to as dented brain coral, meat coral, pacific cactus coral, closed lobophyllia, maze brain coral, or, quite simply, brain coral, closed brain corals of the genus Symphyllia are extremely well-suited for aquarium use. Similar looking to species from the genus Lobophyllia, closed brain corals are somewhat less common within your salt water marine reef aquarium, although equally (if not more) tolerant to variations in lighting and flow. To tell the difference between the two genera, look for a characteristic groove running along the top of the corallite walls in Symphyllia species. In general, Symphyllia species are more sinuous or grooved than Lobophyllia.

Common species include S. recta, S. radians and S. agaricia, although closed brain corals are often simply offered in the trade as Symphyllia spp.
