An absolutely amazing Acropora that rates as being one of the most exotically colorful Acropora that Reeffarmers has seen. The OA Blast from the Past is a bright purple to blue colored Acropora. Somewhat similar in shape and form to the original Purple Monster LE. Branch stems and corallite edges are bright blue, while corallite walls are dark purple. There also appears to be a fluorescent green pigment that can develop in lower light areas of the coral. This green might have been grafted onto the coral at some point. In addition to the bright base coloration, the coral also has colored polyps that extend during the day.
