The AA Cranberry Acropora is a Acro that can develop cream colored branch stems. These stems develop a cream white blue pigmentation. Corallites are dark blue purple, but they can appear cranberry colored in captive reefs. This may be due to a pink red ring pigment that appears on the inner edges of corallites. See image below. Polyps are dark colored and contrast sharply with the bright cream branch stems.
