What an incredible looking Acropora coral that contains pigmentation patterns and corallite morphology that are highly unusual. Reeffarmers received our seed section directly from Uchins Select Corals. This coral was grown by Uchin Chong who lives in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Branch stems can develop a bright blue color that contrasts sharply with the dark purple blue corallites. These corallites can develop pink pigments along their upper edges. Corallite walls also contain some very unique grove patterns. Polyps develop an extended cream blue colored tentacle during the day that gives the coral an overall hairy and colorful appearance.
