The Eye of Jupiter Favia coral has some absolutely incredible pigmentation patterns that rival pigment patterns found within the Acanthastrea lordhowensis corals. As can be see in the above image, corallite centers are brilliant red. The inner corallite walls and ridges are colored blue to purple. Pink pigments can develop within the inner wall. Between the Blue ridges of the corallites, pink pigments are also developing on the Reeffarmers seed coral that is being maintained under moderate to weak light levels. Beyond all that, growth edge corallites can develop an amazing row of large white spots that radiate outward from the corallite center.
