The WWC Yellow Eyed Leptoseris is one of the most brilliantly colored low light stony corals that we have seen. This coral was apparently located in deep water and prefers very low light levels. Corallite eyes or mouths are colored bright yellow. An intricate pattern of gold colored lines are densely packed across the surface of this coral. These lines can vary from copper to gold in coloration. The leading growth edge of the coral can actually develop a band of green pigmentation. That green pigment can also occur in very small areas of the gold line surface patterns.

The World Wide Corals crew acquired the coral around December 2010. The coral is believed to have been exported from Western Australia. WWC named the coral and they have determined the corals captive light requirements. The coral should do fine in moderate to weak water currents. Located down low in a shaded corner seems to be an ideal captive reef placement location.

Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of this coral for in a 130 gallon Raceway Gyre BiZonal system. This system is naturally filtered with a semi-cryptic zone and a reef flat exposed zone. In Steve's captive reef the coral is positioned to receive weak to very weak light levels from a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The price of this coral is $90 per small fragment. The first edition fragment was delivered to private collector Gunter Adkins.
