Acropora spp. - Aquacultured Acropora varieties now available from Biota Palau! These are F2 frags from established F1 broodstock colonies.
This variety is a pastel smoothskin with purple corallites and green polyps reminiscent of the classic Pearlberry Acropora. Though it is difficult to identify Acropora to species, this is likely Acropora desalwii.
Acropora are considered to be by some the pinnacle of reefkeeping. They're generally considered to be difficult to keep, but very rewarding. They need moderate to high lighting and moderate to high water flow. It's necessary to maintain stable alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, and trace elements such as potassium. These fragments are grown under EcoTech Radion and Philips Coral Care lights. We use and recommend Easy Reefs Easy Booster and Easy SPS coral food.
