The Ponape Birdsnest from ORA is a beautifully colored compact growing Seriatopora variety. The short, thin branches are light green with stunning pink tips and the corallites are pronounced giving the branches a bumpy texture. The polyps of this coral are small and not very noticeable, similar to the polyps of the ORA Pink and Hyacinth Birdsnest. This is a fast growing coral that thrives under a wide range of lighting conditions, however, it seems that slightly lower lighting conditions help enhance the green coloration. The Ponape Birdnest looks the most stunning under higher Kelvin bulbs. Pohnpei is a state in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). We feel it is important to point out that the official name of the island is Pohnpei. It was changed from Ponape in the 1980s. Frags will be approximately 1 inch and will come attached to an ORA black plastic plug.
