The Time Warp Acan echinata has two incredibly unique qualities. Its new growth edges can develop a solid orange colored growth rim. That orange rim can also be traced by bright green pigments. The second unique quality is the incredible time warp patterns that can develop on the corals surface and within its corallites. The surface can contain swirling patterns of blue and green pigments, while corallites can also contain exotic swirling patterns of orange, green and blue. Photo and text courtesy of Reeffarmers.
