The Left Behind Favia has a couple of unique contrasting pigment characteristics. Inner corallite areas are primarily colored pink, but the corallite mouths appear bright orange. The second unique pigment contrast occurs between the turquoise green valleys and the inner pink corallite mouths. These pigment contrasts help to give the Left Behind Favia a rather distinct appearence that can be a little difficult to fully capture within a photographic image.

Reeffarmers acquired our seed of this coral from Hugo of Ghost Corals in early summer of 2011. Hugo had actually acquired this coral from Reeffarmers back in late 2009. Reeffarmers was marketing the coral from 2007-2009 as a Pink and Green Favia. We suspected the coral had a lot of potential and it would do well long term in captivity. As can be seen in the images above the coral did develop some unique pigment characteristics while being maintained within Hugo's reef system. So the name Left Behind Favia actually fits this coral as it was left behind by Reeffarmers as a border line LE coral, but picked up by Ghost Corals and developed into a true Limited Edition stony.

Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of this coral for 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 weak to moderate light levels from a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The price of this coral is $65 per small fragment. The first edition fragment was auctioned at the 2011 SE-CFM coral show in Orlando Florida.
