The ORA Acropora nana is similar in coloration to A. valida, but has thinner, more delicate branches. It has a dark tan base with bright purple tips and cream colored polyps. We originally acquired this coral from the home aquarium of one of our first employees, Kelly Hunter, and released it for sale in April of 2003. After selling only 100 pieces, we lost all but one in the 2004 hurricanes that hit ORA. In May 2009 we were finally back up to full-scale production with this coral and were able to put the ORA Nana back on our list.
