The genus Acropora is the most diverse and sought after group of corals in the hobby. These corals are relatively demanding, requiring a stable and mature reef tank for success. They require moderate to high light, high flow, and do best with a little nutrients in the water. Most importantly, the like stable alkalinity and salinity at natural seawater levels (7 – 7.5 dKH, 35 ppt).
This is a specimen of Acropora nasuta with a light green base color, that develops intense pink tips under high light. The polyps are also pink to red, a striking color contrast against the green background. This color scheme looks like the Strawberry Shortcake morphs available in a few different species, but this one is grown from an imported colony of A. nasuta.
