LPS corals stand for large polyp stony corals. Stony corals mean the body of the coral is hard with a stony skeleton that is made from calcium carbonate. These corals also have large fleshy polyps. In appearance, LPS corals generally look like a cross between soft corals and SPS corals.
For those trying to decide between LPS or SPS corals, it is generally easier to keep LPS corals. Corals with smaller polyps can prove a greater challenge to feed than those with larger polyps. In fact, SPS corals require more careful monitoring of parameters and water quality in general. This makes LPS coral species a much better option for those starting out with a reef aquarium.
