A very rare species of Acropora that was spotted in Los Angeles by Steve Garret. Reeffarmers has speculated that this might be an Acropora fenneri. The coral looks exactly like image 6 on page 417 of Corals of the World volume 1 by Vernon. It does not develop the full elongated dragon-like morphology or the dragon Acropora or even the A. echinata. Branch ends are bright blue, while polyp tentacles are bright white.

The original Acropolis Acropora fenneri colony was discovered by Steve Garrett at the Aquarium Arts importation facility in Los Angeles (formally Pacific Aqua Farms). The colony however was severely bleached in the center branch areas. Steve was able to salvage and recover some outer branches of this very unique coral. Reeffarmers acquired our seed section directly from Garrett's Acropolis after the 2016 Macna event in San Diego.

Reeffarmers is maintaining a seed section of this coral in a 7 foot Raceway Gyre BiZonal system. This system is naturally filtered with a semi-cryptic zone and a reef flat exposed zone. In this captive reef the coral is positioned to receive moderate to weak light and weak water current. The first edition fragment of this coral is being offered currently through Facebook and our email list. List price for the small fragment is $95.
