The Ice Fire Echinata coral is one of the most incredibly pigmented Acropora echinata corals that we have seen in captivity. It has a brilliant blue pigmentation at the branch tips that extends downward toward blue cream colored branch stems. This is a true Acropora echinata species that has elongated corallites. Polyps can extend during the daytime photoperiod. Photo and text courtesy of Reeffarmers.
