Another exotic Acropora coral from Nick with Addicting Corals. When we first examined the
image of the Green Hornet Acropora, we realized that it was an unusual and exotic coral.
And when we saw the coral in person, its uniqueness was very apparent. Branch stems are
a bright purple, which becomes very extensive near the branch ends. This gives the coral a
purple tipped appearence with an unusual twist. Corallites are bright lime green and their
coloration also occurs within the purple tip area. The large branch end axial corallites
also develop a green corallite edge.
The Green Hornet Acropora was imported during the late summer of 2011. Nick at
acquired the coral from Oculus Aquatics in Van Nuys California. He had never seen
this species and morph of Acropora before, and Reeffarmers has also never seen this
exact type of morph before. Nick thinks that this coral will do best in strong
flow and strong light levels.
Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of this coral for Reeffarmers.com in a 130
gallon Raceway Gyre BiZonal system. This system is naturally filtered with a semi-cryptic
zone and a reef flat exposed zone. In Steve's captive reef the coral is positioned to
receive strong light levels from a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The
first edition fragment of this coral was sold as a Buy It Now. Introductory price
was $75 for the small single branching first edition fragment.
