Description

The Frogskin Tortuosa has developed a green frogskin grafting in lower lighting conditions. This Acropora is probably not an A. tortuosa, but has developed that tortuosa stag-like growth formation. The green frogskin pigments travel up branches in a manner similar to grafted pigments. The green tends to stay within the branch stem areas. It appears that more green will develop in lower light conditions, while the branches can develop a brighter purple blue in strong light conditions.
