Elkhorn is an intricate, relatively thin branching coral with an army green background and white growth tips and highlights on the coral body. The ORA Elkhorn produces very little to no polyp extension and generates a thick slime when bothered. As this coral grows, it forms a gnarling form like a branch from a tree growing on the windward side of a mountain.
