Overview

The Valida Tri-color Coral is a beautiful strain of Acropora that is pink to tan in color with vibrant purple tips. This species grows in a more clustered form when compared to other species, and will grow rapidly under the right conditions. The purple coloration will intensify under intense lighting.

The growth rate of this Acropora Coral is much more rapid than most of the other corals found in an established reef aquarium. It can also be cultured and grown into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces, if conditions are ideal. The Aquacultured Tricolor Valida Acropora Coral prefers a moderately high light level combined with a strong intermittent water current within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will require the addition of supplemental calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

Valida Tri-color Acropora Corals will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO, T-5's up to the more intense metal halides. Alter their position in the aquarium depending on the lighting, and provide at least 5 watts per gallon using one of the lighting systems mentioned above.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae are hosted within its body, so it receives the majority of its nutritional requirements from photosynthesis. While it does not require additional food to maintain its health in the reef aquarium, it will feed on micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.

The Valida Tri-color Coral frags are mounted on a composite plug that can be affixed to live rock anywhere in the aquarium with gel super glue or epoxy.
