Another incredible polyp discovery by Sexy Corals (SC). The SC Orange Rainbows have banding rings of pigments that vary across a rainbow color pattern. The outer color band is bright pink. This pink then varies across to an inner orange band. The inner disk is dark green with also some fluorescent green patches. Some of the orange pigments can spot or splotch within the green center band. The polyps tentacles also participate in the rainbow pattern. The dark tentacles contain inner pink spots that give way to dark tentacle tips. Photo and text courtesy of Reeffarmers.
