Research – Explore – Inspire

Find your corals IDs. What’s this corals genus? Has it a fancy name, is it a special breed? Time to find out.

Corals come in various forms and colors. Even one specific species can have several color morphs. So coral breeders started to give their corals fancy names, to distinguish their corals from others. 

This site shall help you to identify corals your’re going to buy or you’re already keeping in your tank. You can filter for example by color, form, origin or species. 

It’s a fast way to get an ID for your coral. Or maybe you’re just fascinated by the colors and forms corals are showing ? Feel free to browse the directory.

Coral ID is a collaborative website that enables you to search for the ID of corals. A panel of experienced coral enthusiasts and breeders are adding new corals to this database.
