The Volcanic Eruption Acan has large sized corallites and is probably an Acanthastrea rotundoflora. It has an amazing pigmentation pattern that can vary its intensity. The fluorescent green large corallites have extensive bright orange ridges. Radiating outward from these ridges are lines of orange red spots. The inside of the corallites also contain concentric circles of orange yellow spots. Photo and text courtesy of Reeffarmers.
