Acropora sp.- ORA "Purple Plasma" 1.5" Stock Frag

Availability: In stock


Acropora sp. - DR "Purple Plasma" -  Stock Frag - The ORA Purple Plasma is a thin branching Acropora with staghorn coral shape.   It will develop a dramatic purple background color and contrasting green or yellow corallites and polyps.  These frags are not strong purple yet but under strong blue lighting the base will develop into a strong purple.  The polyps are always well-extended and new growth appears white to baby blue. Favoring strong lighting and strong water movement, this coral will thrive in a variety of reef aquarium setups. Be sure to provide it a nice location on your reef where it can stand out, because, with good conditions and time, this frag will become a real showpiece! Not always available from ORA and always limited when they are!

CARE LEVEL:  Intermediate


PLACEMENT: On Rockwork or Rubble

WATER MOVEMENT: Moderate-Strong

LIGHTING:  Moderate-Bright

HUSBANDRY NOTES: We keep this Acropora about 18" under  20k 400 watt Radium metal halide lights. We feed them several times a week with oyster eggs and other meaty, marine- based foods. Water parameters are not overly critical, in our experience.

NOTE: You will be purchasing a coral similar to the one in the photo. Because we spend less time photographing and uploading "stock" items, we pass the savings on to you! If they are on the site, they're always ready to ship!
