Another incredible Dragon-shaped Acropora coral ! The Purple Dragon Eyes Acropora was named by Leo Chen who acquired the first fragments of the original colony. This is a true Dragon-Type Acropora that also has bright green dragon eyes or polyps. The corallites develop a purple blue pigment that extends down from the corallites. This pigment can completely cover the corals branches. Overall the coral develops into a loose branch tabling formation with branches that have irregular random growth.
