This stunning Acropora coral has pigment patterns that are similar to the Incredible Hulk Acropora. There is a base purple or Royal Plum colored pigment. Over this purple color an intense green fluorescing pigment occurs in areas of the coral that are exposed to intense light. This is different then the Incredible Hulk Acropora which develops its bright green pigments on branch tips and corallite ridges. The Royal Plum Acro can develop some unique pigment patterns where corallites are half colored intense green and half colored Royal Plum. Photo and text courtesy of Reeffarmers.
