Wow, I didn't know that either. So the red/blue scoly that ReefScience sold me is actually a green/orange cynarina!

Nto so sure it is from that one pic i've seen of yours.
Try googling cynarina and scolymia and have a look at them
I find it can be easy enough to tell the difference, but not so easy to explain.
Even reading bornemans description it didn't really help

They will open up and feed slightly differently too.
Sods law my cynarina is closed up right now, normally open the second the lights go off.
Will try and get a pic up for you tomorrow

Mine has those bony structures that radiate inwards from the outer edge to the center...look like spokes on a wheel.

Mine doesn't have the fancy colors, but I love it when it does this with food:

Compare the above with this very poor (taken by torchlight ) pic of my cynarina feeding



See how the cynarina has opened right out, whereas the scoly kind of unfolds but not as far?

Here's a much more up-to-date pic of mine, with my awesome little matching Eviota goby that lives behind it.

Would you say this one is a scoly or a cynarina?

I'd say that's a scoly because of the tissue and skeleton. Cynarinas are much more "bubbly" looking. But I could be wrong....

My money would be on it being a Scoly. But there is room for error. To me, in most pis, Cynarina are a bit more transparent..

I'm liking the scolys!


How would one do in a biocube 29? It would be the stock lighting and the stock pump as well as it being placed on the sand bed.
Thanks for helping me. Just doing some research on corals for when I start stocking my tank

thanks again!

They actually expand largest in somewhat reduced lighting and flow. They are great showpieces for smaller tanks with lower lighting so I'd recommend them to people with a nano. just know they can get quite large. Mine gets almost 10" across sometimes.

The Atlantis Marine Aqaurium online store had some pretty awesome ones last time I looked.
