Overview

The ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral is a gorgeous color variety of the popular Acropora tenuis coral sure to add an invigorating burst of color to your reef aquarium landscape. At initial glance, the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral frag appears to be a green monochromatic SPS coral but as the green growing tips begin to branch, the umber red coloration of the base becomes more evident. This contrasting color combination gives the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral a striking appearance. In addition, the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral produces flared, scale-like corallites that give the developing branches a full, textural appearance.

The ideal aquarium setup for the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral is an established reef aquarium with moderate to bright lighting conditions achieved with T-5 fluorescent, powerful LEDs, or the more intense metal halide light fixtures. To maximize the growth rate of your ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral, it is imperative to maintain high pH, alkalinity, and calcium levels and to keep phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible.

In addition to moderate to high lighting conditions and high water quality, the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral benefits from medium to strong, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This is best accomplished with a wavemaker or multiple powerheads. For continued good health, the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral requires the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, magnesium supplements, as well as trace elements. Keep in mind that under the right conditions, Acropora corals are exceptionally fast-growing and will most-likely require additional supplementation, especially calcium, to sustain its growth.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral supplies the coral a majority of its nutrition. However, the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Red & Green Tenuis Acropora Coral will benefit from the addition of various types of phyto and zooplankton.
