The Super Nova Psammocora profundacella is perhaps one of the most incredibly pigmented Psammocora corals we have ever seen in captivity. Tentacles on the corals polyps have medium blue pigmentation, while the main base has a dark purplish/brown. What makes this coral extra special is that the center of the corallites is colored bright green (see image above). These green centers or spots along with the spots of blue is what caused Jeromy Carroll to name this coral the Super Nova Psammocora. Photo and text courtesy of Reeffarmers.
