The OA Blueberry Delight coral is brilliantly colored Acropora with blue corallites extending from a green branch stem. As can be seen in the image above, the coral can also encrust very well. When maintained under intense light levels, the blue tips can actually appear pinkish in color. Polyps can also develop pigments that range from green tentacles to a blue center. The corals enrusting growth edge is also blue with a mix of green. In some branch areas the blue and green pigments can partially mix to develop a turquoise coloration.
