Husbandry

Chironephthya caribaea (Deichmann, 1936)

Many Thank to Dr. Yukimitsu Imahara for permission to Use the Pciture.

Chironephthya: Polyps scattered on trunk and main branches as well as at ends of terminal branchlets. Later, Fabricius & Alderslade
(2001) redefined the major distinctive traits of both genera as follows.

Siphonogorgia: Polyps may occur on most of the branches, or they may be restricted to just the terminal branchlets, which can be lobe like. Calyces low.
Chironephthya: Polyps are generally found only on the terminal and near terminal branchlets, though in some species they can be found
on the main branches, and occasionally on the upper stem. Calyces prominent, shelf like.
