Acropora loisettae

I have a special fondness for this week’s coral, having originally collected a small colony from Bali about 12 or 13 years ago which ultimately grew to become a stunning specimen. At the time, the Acropora loisettae or Blue Tip Green Stag was rather hard to obtain which justified my pride in having collected this one.  Fragging it for many people over the years was a pleasure and I typically sold it for about $60.00 for a  1 – 2″ frag. Despite harvesting frags from the colony, it still became the size of a basketball in just two years time. As Acropora loiettae has become more readily available it is more easily obtained and a 1.5″ frag can be purchased from Unique Corals for a mere $24.00. MORE
