Overview

The Pearlberry Acropora Coral is a new release from Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums (ORA™) which occurs in many shades of blue, purple, and pearl, making it a wonderful addition to a reef aquarium. Many of the brightly-colored Pearlberry Acroporas will even fluoresce under actinic lighting giving your aquarium a stunning look during sunrise and sunset simulations.

The ideal conditions for the Acropora coral is an established reef aquarium with bright lighting provided by preferably intense metal halides. They can also thrive under multiple T-5 or compact fluorescents if placed high in the aquarium. Under the right conditions, the growth rate of the Acropora coral is much more rapid than most of the other corals found in an established reef aquarium.

To maximize their growth rate, it is imperative to maintain a high pH, alkalinity and calcium levels, and to keep phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. If conditions are ideal, these corals can also be cultured and grown into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces.

Along with lighting and water quality, Acropora corals prefer strong, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This is best accomplished with a wavemaker and multiple powerheads. Acropora corals receive a majority of their nutritional requirements from photosynthesis, but will benefit from the addition of zooplankton.

The Pearlberry Acropora Coral is mounted on a small black plastic plug that can be placed easily and securely in or between the rockwork in the reef aquarium.
