The LOA Richard's Rainbow Stag definitely lives up to the rainbow description. Branch tips develop a purple blue pigment, while cream colored branch stems develop pink red pigmentation. Coralline edges are bright pink with the pink red coloration extending along the corallite wall. Polyp tentacles are dark reddish with an elongated green tentacle. Overall pigment mixing can give the branch stems an orange hue appearance in some areas. Pigment mixing can also give some polyps a goldish hue.

Richard's Rainbow Stag was named by Law Office Aquariums (LOA) after Richard Bausa. Richard is a long time associate of Dennis Sandoval and helps Dennis maintain the reef tanks at LOA. The original coral was acquired as a browned out stick in the spring of 2017. After being maintained within the LOA grow out reefs for 6 months, this browned out stick has developed into one of the most colorful staghorn Acropora in the captive market. Reeffarmers acquired our seed section directly from Law Office Aquariums who shipped a seed fragment direct to our shop in Texas.

Reeffarmers is maintaining a seed section of this coral in a 8 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 light and weak water current. The first edition fragment of this coral was auctioned by Law Office Aquariums 11/18/17-11/19/17. The auction occurred in the Facebook groupOfficial SPS Frag Swap Page. Final auction price was $100.
