The Rising Sun Stag is an incredible pink colored staghorn that recently developed a more intense pink pigmentation in Reeffarmers fragment holding system. The pink tip and pink corallite edge coloration has now intensified and covers the branch stem and also the entire corallite wall. This staghorn also has the ability to encrust at its base area (see above image). Corallites have a very exotic fluted shape where the lower walls develop and extended spoon-like cup formation. Polyps tentacle tips are also cream pink and appear to be developing pigmentation.
