This Joe’s Ice Queen Acropora LE develops glacier blue corallites and cream turquoise colored branch stems. Corallitels are also very elongated and similar to A. echinata corallites, but not quite as long as A. echinata. These qualities are somewhat similar to the Ice Fire Echinata coral, but in addition to those similarities, the Ice Queen also has some interesting pigments within the corallite polyps. There appears to be ice blue centers to the polyps surrounded by dark red pigments. These pigments form an almost crown type of configuration. This coral has some incredible morphological possibilities in captivity.
