LO-560 STAGHORN BRYOZOAN, Schizoporella unicornis


A brittle branched, orange bryozoan that is often confused with coral. Adds a dash of cheerful color to the aquarium and creates a mini-habitat for sea horses, shrimp, etc. Colonies often contain feather duster worms and other polychaetes, crabs, and top shells. Clumps range from 7 to 10 cm. Four million years ago this genus was a major contributor to the Miami limestone formation of South Florida.
