This encrusting massive brain type coral has an incredible pigmentation pattern. The corallite centers are solid pink/red. This pink/red pigment radiates outward to the edge of the corallite which is bright green colored. In a basic sense this is the opposite pigmentation pattern that occurs in the Reeffarmers Auctioned Edition War Coral. That coral is a Favites pentagona that has a red body with bright green centers. The Peace Coral was found and named by Matt Juner of and Mike Obrien of . They believe that the Peace Coral may also be a Favites pentagona. The coral was initially found at an online vendors web site. It was very unusual but not very colorful initially. The coral developed its current incredible color in Mike and Matt's tank. In the closeup image below there are some faint stripping pigmentation patterns. In some areas blue pigments can develop more fully on the main body. This coral has all kinds of incredible pigment development possibilities Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed farming section of the Peace Coral for in one of his 125 gallon naturally filtered Tri-Zonal Reef Aquarium. In Steve's captive reef the coral is positoned to recieve weak to moderate light under a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium Metal Halide. Please note this coral was retired on December 2008 due to the loss of the seed.
