A very nicely colored blue millepora from Laser Lance in Fort Worth. The Blue is a light shade with a little white cream color. Thus the corals name Frost Bite Millepora. Tips of branches and corallite edges can also develop a reddish pink pigment. Polyp tentacles extend during the day and have a more white cream blue coloration. The fragment image below shows all frost bite blue, while some of the red pink pigments can be seen on the parent colony image above.
