Acropora carduus- UC True “Red Dragon” Acropora- Stock Frag- The real deal! This attractive branching Acropora features a beautiful skeleton with excellent red color! Shown is one of our amazing mother colonies which the frags are taken from. If you make it happy, this coral will really put on a show over time! LOADED with “Centerpiece” potential! These UC premium frags come from highly sought after maricultured parent stock and are colored up over time in our facility to a rich reddish pink. They do quite well in captivity and grow fairly quickly.
Although they do not encrust in as robust a manner as other Acropora types, they will put down some skeleton on the frag plug. Rest assured that each and every Red Dragon that we ship has been propagated and grown out in our facility for weeks before it’s available for sale. We will never send you a freshly cut frag! Occasionally, a frag will break off of the plug or have a branch tip or two snap off during shipping. This is a byproduct of their unique and rather delicately-branched morphology. While unfortunate, this is seldom detrimental to the overall health of the frag. In fact, we encourage you to secure the broken off tips to a rock or frag plug and grow out another specimen.
