Rainbow Party Chalice
SC Rainbow Party Limited Edition Chalice Stony. Original Sexy Corals colony imaged.
This chalice is one of the most incredibly colored chalices we have ever seen.
Pigments vary from the blue grey surface undertone to the surface bumps that are
colored green, yellow, orange and red to the corallite mouths that are bright pink.
Definitely a Rainbow Party of pigmentation colors.

The SC (Sexy Corals) Rainbow Party Chalice contains just about every color in the
Rainbow. A fantastically pigmented chalice. Corallites are relatively large and are
covered with numerous bumps on the surface. These bumps are where the rainbow pattern
of pigmentation develops. Colors vary from Green to Yellow to Orange to Red. The
corallite mouths are also a hot pink with some cherry red. The main surface of the
coral is colored blue grey. Quite literally every color in the rainbow.
Reeffarmers acquired our seed of this coral directly from
Sexy Corals in September
of 2010. Mike at Sexy Corals initially received the coral within an Indonesian coral
shipment during May 2010. Originally the coral did not have the intense coloration.
It was primarily all blue with a hint of pink in the corallite eyes. He maintained
the coral during its first month under weak T5 lighting. Then placed it under a
250 watt metal halide where the rainbow pigmentation developed.
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 moderate light levels from a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. Reeffarmers
price for 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 a silent auction. We will still list
exotic corals as Limited Editions and will continue to build web pages for them.
SC Rainbow Party Chalice First Edition Actual Fragment.
This fragment was harvested during the first week of September.
Pigmentation had faded due to stress from the harvesting process.
Sexy corals states that moderate to bright light will develop the Rainbow pigments.
