:  Pectiniidae
Taxonomy: Scleractinia: Pectiniidae (Stony Corals)
Body Form: Pectiniids form plates and encrusting masses with delicate skeletons. They feed at night with long tentacles. Heavy tissue may obscure their skeleton.
Diet: Some have zooxanthellae and others are entirely heterotrophic.    Care Level:  moderate
Natural History: Pectiniids have delicate skeletons that break easily and they must be handled with care. They feed at night with long sweeper tentacles. They are found in areas of low to moderate water flow and moderate light levels. They produce large amounts of coral mucus that can fowl aquarium water. They should be spaced away from other corals to avoid aggressive behavior with sweeper tentacles attacking other species.
