Corallite ridges of this Favia can develop a bright blue pigmentation. The inner corallite areas are ringed with red pigments. Inside this Ring there is an inner bright blue area. The mouths of the corallites are colored bright red. These color pigments explain the corals name of Fire and Ice, which was coined by Mingwei. There are patterns that also develop inside the corallite areas and the coral may develop some additional pigmentation in captivity.
