Limited Edition
Little Princess Favia

Limited Edition Little Princess Favia Reeffarmers Original Seed Section.
We are finding more Favia/Favites species corals that develop some incredible
pigmentation patterns in captivity. In most cases the Favia corals only need weak
Metal Halide light or Moderate to strong Power Compact or T5 lighting to develop
and maintain their pigments. The Little Princess Favia has one of the more exotic
Favia color morphs. A combination of pink corallite centers, brilliant fluorescent
green valleys and radiating spots of cream white pigment make this one incredible coral.

Another must have colorful Favia. The Little Princess Favia has some very striking pigments patterns. The inner center of each corallite is colored bright pink. Around this an outer band of darker purple pigment occurs along with spots of cream blue/white pigments. These spots occur in rows that radiate outward into the surface area located between corallites. The surface area between corallites has an intense fluorescing green pigment.

This coral was originally found by Phil Henderson. Phil located the coral in 2007 at the retail reef shop Jeff's Exotic Fish located in Orange California. We do not know what part of the world this coral was originally exported from. Phil believes the coral needs strong PC or T5 lighting to grow well and maintain the fluorescing green pigments. Under metal halides the coral appears to only require weak to moderate light levels to maintain growth and color. The coral also appears to prefer moderate water currents.

Reeffarmers acquired our original seed of this coral from Richard McKellip. Unfortunately we lost that seed. We acquired a new seed colony for this incredible coral from the California Reef store Fins and Critters. Our new seed is doing very well. We may have auctioned a previous First Edition fragment from our original seed. That auction was on the old CFM Auction site and the records are now lost. So we have decided to start again with our new seed.

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 moderate to weak light levels from a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The price of this coral per small fragment consisting of a single polyp will be determined by the first edition auction below.
