'Helios' is a nearly symmetrical colony of Tubastrea coccinea collected from an oil rig off the coast of Louisiana where it is an introduced species. It is one of the most successful of all coral species, having invaded the Caribbean in the past century by hitchhiking through the Panama Canal from the Pacific. It prefers colonizing man-made substrates like shipwrecks, dock pilings, and the aforementioned oil rigs.
