Bubble Coral (Plerogyra sinuosa)

Series of illustrations of the Bubble Coral from multiple views

In the Red Sea and even the Indo-Pacific oceanic environment, the Bubble Coral (Plerogyra sinuosa) is often seen bubbling or showing a variety of bubble sizes. During the day, the bubbles are large but small at night, leaving the coral to display long sweeping tentacles that can bite. The bubbles are translucent or have pale strips when inflated and less translucent when retracted. Other communities call it bladder coral, grape coral, pearl coral, and octobubble coral. The Bubble coral prefers moderately lit areas and can be tan, pale green, or pink.

The Bubble Coral has an overall colony diameter between 11.8”-23.6” (30-60 cm) and height of 9.8”-19.7” (25-50 cm). The diameters of the individual branches are roughly 1”-1.6” (2.5-4 cm) with individual heights between 1.6”-2.75” (4-7 cm).

The way Corals grow on the ocean floor makes us think of them as plants, but they are invertebrates. These colorful creatures are under the class Anthozoa and depend on one another and prefer warm shallow waters or cold ocean floors. They live and grow together, forming large colonial colonies.
