Overview

The aquacultured ORA® Green Planet Acropora is an intensely colored, tabling Acropora that exhibits fluorescent green tips with a dark green base and polyps. New growth is nearly white in coloration, adding to the contrast of this beautiful coral. Like other ORA Acroporas, the ORA Green Planet is hardy and fast growing under a range of conditions but actinic lighting really brings out the extreme fluorescent coloration of this coral.

They will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, T-5s, powerful LEDs and up to the more intense metal halides. The ORA aquacultured corals satisfy the majority of their nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. 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 ORA aquacultured Green Planet Acropora coral is attached to a plastic plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium
