The Double Doozy Acropora contains a double dose of incredibly bright pigmentation. A bright pink/red pigment develops on corallite edges. Due to the shape of the corallites, this can give the upper ends of branches almost a solid pink/red appearance. Branch stems and corallite bases are a bright green. In lower sections of branches, the color is primarily bright green with just pink/red corallite edges. On Reeffarmers seed fragments polyps extend partially during the day and they have a cream pink coloration. While being maintained in captivity for over half a year, the pink/red corallite edge pigments have shifted to a more purple/red coloration. Polyps have retained the pink cream color.
