This Acro gem had been hidden away and was growing in a captive reef for seven years. Under bright 20,000 K halide lighting it has developed some absolutely stunning pigment qualities. As can be seen in the closeup image above: red polyps; pinkish cream extended tentacle; pink edged corallites; cream colored branch stems; and even a few green yellow tipped branches. It has basic qualities similar to other Lemonade Acropora, but it is a very unique and distinct species morph.
