Description

The Sulphur divaricata has a very unique corallite structure. Radial corallites near the branch bases have an A. tenuis shape to them, however near the branch ends they are more similar in shape to A. divaricata. The main pigmentation is a bright yellow green that can vary to bright green. Corallite edges and branch tips can develop blue pigments, but captive water conditions have to be very good. Branch stems themselves also appear to be able to develop some blue pigments. Photo and text courtesy of Reeffarmers.
