The ORA Solitaryensis is one of the rare plating Acropora varieties. It has a greenish tan base, light purple tips and striking green polyps. Branches grow horizontally and fuse together forming a solid plate in the center of the colony with new growth remaining separated. As the colony ages, it grows into multiple layers of horizontal plates. This Acropora is extremely slow growing.
