The OA Hot Lava Acropora is a bright red Acropora somewhat similar to the shortcake-like Acro. Brian Kim at Oculus noticed this colony within a shipment of Strawberry Shortcake Aussies. Normally the Strawberry Aussie has pink corallites and green branch stems. This new Hot Lava morph has cream colored branch stems and bright red corallites along with red polyps. This helps to give the colony a more overall red appearance. It is very possible that this could be an entirely different species of Acropora.
