reefs.comEuphyTri2It’s no secret that Ultra Coral Australia collects some of the hottest corals down under; this Euphyllia ancora is proof. The colony sports all three of what I consider to be the hottest colors a hammer can exhibit, green, yellow, and gold!

reefs.comEuphyTriPictures were shown with both polyps expanded and retracted taken under blue spectrum T5 light. As expected the retracted photo really exposes the three colors, although the swollen tentacles are just as beautiful. This is an absolute stunning show piece, one I would love to add to my “jellybean” collection. This colony sold quickly for over $1,000. Props to Nic Dos Santos and the rest of the crew for this find, feel free to ship the next one stateside.
