The frogspawn coral is a relatively easy to grow for a LPS coral. Frogspawn has a branching skeleton and green or brown soft tissue that looks very much like frogs eggs. This is where the frogspawn gets its name from. Frogspawns are good for those just entering into LPS because they grow well and are hearty. Care should be taken because the frogspawn can pack a powerful sting. The frogspawn should be kept away from other corals and only handled with gloves.
