The incredible Metallic Pink Favia develops an exotic hot pink pigmentation within its corallite center area. Under moderate halides this pink has intensified and has become what can be best described as a metallic pink coloration (see image above). This is a fairly new Favia coral that appears to have other pigments located outside the corallite center. This pigments could develop some more exotic coloration patterns over time.
