The Chicken Pox Favia has very large almost LPS sized corallites. The center of the corallites are brilliantly colored with bright orange pink pigments. The entire center area also has bright white spots or grains of pigment. The center corallite also tends to have a ring or band of bright orange pink pigments. The outer corallite is colored medium green and there are spots or grains of pigment throughout the surface. Near the center of the corallite the outer corallite area also has pink orange pigment spots. Polyp tentacles are white tipped (see image above).

Reeffarmers acquired this coral from Clint at Diamonds in the Reef. We divided the imported coral colony into three sections with a local reef enthusiast and a Southern California reef store. Clint named the coral based on how the bright colored corallite centers appear to be chicken pox on the surface of the coral.

Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of the Chicken Pox Favia for in a 125 gallon naturally filtered Tri-Zonal Reef Aquarium. In Steve's captive reef the coral is positioned to receive week light under a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium Metal Halide. It appears that this coral will develop its best growth and coloration under weak to moderate lighting. The price is $60.00 per small fragment consisting of a single large corallite.

Please note Reeffarmers is no longer taking new reservations for new corals. The current economic conditions are not supportive for reservations that extend for a few years into the future. After this first edition is distributed, we will sell future captive produced fragments on either our Buy It Now page or via another silent auction. We will still list exotic corals as Limited Editions and will continue to build web pages for them.
