Thin Leaf Lettuce Coral GALLERY

Agaricia tenuifolia

I've only spotted small patches of what appears to be Thin leaf Lettuce Coral. It differs from Scaled Lettuce coral in that the blades are much finer and delicate with polyps on both sides. Thin Leaf also seems to have "leaves" that grow both horizontally and vertically. Observed at depths of around 8-10 feet.
