Another Watermelon Chalice with incredible pigmentation patterns and colors. This pink and blue
watermelon chalice can develop a very unique pigment pattern within its corallite mouth areas.
An Orange Red ray pattern travels outward from the mouth. This develops a star-like pattern
within the corallite mouth. Between the rays the corallites have the typical bright fluorescent
green pigment found within the Watermelon Chalices. The surface of the coral is rough with
many bumps that are colored bright pink. Between these pink bumps there is a bluish grey pigment
that develops within valleys. The leading growth edge is bright fluorescent green which is
typical of the Watermelon chalice corals.
Reeffarmers acquired our seed of this coral from Mike at
Sexy Corals. Mike originally acquired
the coral in an Indonesia transhipment. That was earlier in the year around March 2010. This
chalice was initially just grayish with a hint of pink. Within 2 to 3 months in Mike's system
the chalice devleoped into this new Watermelon pigment morph. Mike believes the coral requires
medium to high light to develop the pigmentation. The stronger the light the brighter the pink.
Also prefers moderate current flows.
Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of this coral for Reeffarmers.com in an 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
light levels from a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The price of this coral per small
fragment consisting of a single corallite will be determined by the First Edition Silent Auction.
Please note Reeffarmers is no longer taking new reservations for new corals. The current economic
conditions are not supportive for reservations that extend for a few years into the future.
After this first edition is distributed, we will sell future captive produced fragments on either
our Buy It Now page or via another silent auction. We will still list exotic corals as Limited
Editions and will continue to build web pages for them.
