The ORA® Mint Pavona Coral is a small polyp stony (SPS) coral, and is referred to as the Cactus, Potato Chip, or Lettuce Coral. Its common name "cactus" comes from its appearance, which resembles that of a cactus. These corals form thin leafy plates that appear to have a more delicate growth form. Its color form is a beautiful shade of mint green that is stunning under the blue end of the lighting spectrum.

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.

The ORA Aquacultured Mint Pavona Coral is attached to a plastic plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1" to 2"

Customer Testimonials

Debbie O'Rourke Southampton , NJ
WOW! Was I ever surprised when I unpacked this little gem. I had a pavona years ago - but it was horizontal like a rock. Lost it due to a rock avalanche. This coral is as pictured but under aquarium lights looks more like a mint green. Stunning to look at in my aquarium and hoping it does well.
