The ORA Tri-Color Valida is a beautiful coral that is primarily purple in color. As the Tri-Color name points out it also has green polyps and a green or brown base. ORA has several slightly different Valida variants in cultivation. While all are hardy and fast growing, some have thicker branches and some grow larger or bushier than others. The differences in Valida variants are typically so slight that it does not warrant separate trade names.
