The Green Goblet Acropora is an amazing coral with prominent thick corallite walls that are colored bright green under 20,000 K halides. This color can appear more yellow green under different lighting schemes. Main branch stems are purple blue. Polyps are colored dark blue. In the only original seed colony imaged above, some of the branches have corallites that only have minor amounts of green on corallite edges. We believe that areas getting more light exposure will develop more intense yellow corallite pigments. Photo courtesy of Reef Farmers.
