The LiveAquaria® CCGC Aquacultured Rusty Pink Milleopra Coral creates a visual contrast of deep red coloration in the home aquarium. Aquacultured for optimal health, this beautiful coral species exhibits the branching or tabling growth of other Acropora, but with color intensity often unmatched in the home reef aquarium. Like other Acropora, this coral is fast growing when kept in ideal water conditions and strong water flow. The result is often a stunning, branched visual focal point.
The brood stock of these coral frags was obtained from Tonga and was harvested at a depth between 35 to 45 feet. The parent colony that produces these frags was given a health inspection and quarantined before being propagated.
The Rusty Pink Millepora does best in areas of high light and strong, indirect or intermittent water current. Relatively peaceful, this Acropora does well in open areas of your system so it has ample room to grow.
For continued good health, it requires the addition of supplemental
strontium, and other
trace elements to the water. It also benefits from additional weekly feedings of micro-plankton or foods designed for
filter feeding invertebrates.
LiveAquaria® Aquacultured Coral frags are mounted to a fired ceramic plug that can be affixed to live rock anywhere in the aquarium with gel super glue or epoxy.
