    Known as Galaxea Coral, Galaxy Coral, Bristle Coral, Tooth Coral, Starburst Coral, and Green Star Coral, Galaxea fascicularis is an Indo-Pacific species of colonial stony coral (Anthozoa - Scleractinia - Oculinidae) [1].

    Colonies of this type of coral are usually low-growing and cushion-shaped, depending on the substrate. Corallites are of mixed size, tentacles and septa of contrasting colors. They feed on plankton.

    This coral is widespread in the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean and in the Western Pacific [2].
