An exciting new War Coral with a purple pigmentation was exported from a new area of Indonesia. This coral has a purple main body pigmentation that is very distinctive from the red colored original War Coral. It appears to be very similar in structure and in fragmentation capabilities. We have yet to see this new War Coral extend polyps within a captive system. We are assuming that once it fully adapts to captivity within a few months the polyp tentacles will begin to be extended. The coral appears to be a little more difficult to fragment then the original War Coral. Fragments experience a slight amount of tissue recession in the new cut areas. The coral overall appears to respond to captivity very well and tissue is puffed up and extended. The original colony was found at the Southern California Reef Store Pasadena Tropical Fish by Advanced Reef Aquarist jimmy007 from Reef Central. Steve of Pasadena Tropical Fish told Jimmy that this coral came from a new Indonesian exporter. The exotic purple coloration of the coral makes it appear very unique. Reeffarmers acquired our seed from Jimmy's main colony. We believe at this time that the coral prefers moderate to weak light to maintain its intense purple/maroon pigmentation. Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of the Purple War Coral for in one of his 125 gallon naturally filtered Tri-Zonal Reef Aquarium. In Steve's captive reef the coral is positioned to receive moderate to weak light under a 400 watt 20,000 K Metal Halide. Please note - On August 2010 Reeffarmers retired this coral. Demand was weak and we lost our seed.
