Under regular metal halides the Yellow Matrix Acropora appears to be fluorescent green with some yellow highlights on corallite ridges. When placed under Blue LED lights the coral can appear bright fluorescent yellow in color. These fluorescent colors come from the corallites which are large and flared into what has been previously called the matrix pattern.
