This Common Brain Coral was shot at Cinnamon Bay, in St. John, along with the thousands of small fishes swimming around it.

Common Brain Coral - Diploria strigosa

Colonies form smooth plates or hemispherical domes at depths ranging from 3-130 feet (0.9-39.7 m) The corallites are arranged in long valleys along with ridges having no top groove. This brain coral appears green to brown or yellow brown in color with valleys often of a lighter color.
