One of the hardest colors to find in any coral is a true yellow. With that being said check out this super yellow perfect yuma specimen. It has bluish purple undertones and is really one of a kind.
Palythoa Grandis One of the most beautiful soft corals! Sadly also very poisonous. We never recommend fragging these and handle them with care. They contain a very serious paly toxin. True palythoas grandis are the ones you need to be careful with.
