Yellow Leather Toadstool corals, scientifically known as Sarcophyton spp., are a type of soft coral that can be a beautiful addition to a reef aquarium. The Tonga variety, in particular, is known for its vibrant yellow coloration. Proper care is essential to ensure the health and vibrancy of Yellow Leather Toadstool corals from Tonga. Here are care guidelines:


Yellow Leather Toadstool corals are generally adaptable to various lighting conditions. They can thrive under moderate lighting. LED or T5 lighting systems with a spectrum that includes blue and white light are suitable. Place them in the middle to lower sections of the tank, providing them with moderate lighting conditions.

Water Parameters:

  • Maintain stable and pristine water quality with minimal fluctuations in temperature, salinity, and water chemistry.
  • Temperature: Keep it between 74°F to 80°F (23°C to 27°C).
  • Salinity: Maintain a specific gravity of 1.024-1.026.
  • pH: Maintain a pH level between 8.1 and 8.4.
  • Alkalinity: Keep alkalinity (KH) levels within the range of 7-10 dKH.
  • Calcium and Magnesium: Maintain calcium levels around 380-450 ppm and magnesium levels around 1250-1350 ppm.

Water Flow:

Yellow Leather Toadstool corals prefer low to moderate water flow. Provide gentle water movement in the tank to help remove waste and deliver nutrients.


Yellow Leather Toadstool corals are primarily photosynthetic and can derive energy from the light. However, they are also capable of capturing small food particles from the water. While they can capture some food from the water column, target feeding with coral food, zooplankton, or phytoplankton occasionally can enhance their growth and coloration. Feeding once a week is typically sufficient.

Water Quality Maintenance:

Regular water changes are essential to replenish trace elements and remove excess nutrients. Aim for bi-weekly water changes of 10-15% of the total water volume.


Place Yellow Leather Toadstool corals in a stable location in the tank where they won't be disturbed by other corals or fish. Ensure there is adequate space around them to expand without coming into contact with other tank inhabitants.


When introducing Yellow Leather Toadstool corals to your tank, acclimate them carefully to your tank's lighting and water conditions to prevent shock.

Disease and Pests:

Inspect your corals regularly for signs of diseases or pests. Quarantine new corals and inspect existing ones to catch issues early.

Proper care of Yellow Leather Toadstool corals from Tonga requires maintaining stable water parameters and providing them with adequate lighting and water flow. Regular monitoring and adjustments will help ensure the health and vibrancy of these beautiful soft corals in your reef tank.
