Overview

The ORA® Ice Tortuosa Coral is a slow growing branching coral that is sure to add beauty and diversity to your aquarium. The ORA® Ice Tortuosa has a deep green base with beautiful baby blue to almost white branching tips with multiple thick, long branches.

The Acropora tortuosa Coral prefers a moderately high light level combined with 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.

These aquacultured corals are fragmented from corals that have been raised in captivity for at least 3 or 4 generations. They are not fragmented from wild harvested corals; which makes them hardier than their wild counterparts. Being fully encrusted, it enables them to ship better with less stress when compared to newly fragmented corals.

They will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO and T-5, up to the more intense metal halides. Alter their position in the aquarium depending on the lighting, and provide at least 3 watts per gallon using one of the lighting systems mentioned above.

It will also benefit from additional food fed weekly in the form of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.

The Ice Tortuosa that are offered from ORA are mounted on a composite base and can be placed easily and securely in or between rockwork in the reef aquarium.
