The Raptors Peace Coral is another brilliantly colored Favia/Favites coral with bright fluorescent green corallite ridges. Corallites of this coral are very unique and contain a bright violet pigment. The entire corallite is colored bright violet with some pinkish highlights. The inner corallite ridges are a dark purple black. Corallite outer ridges are composed of radiating lines of fluorescent green bumps. This green pigment can sometimes be found in the valleys located between the radiating lines of bumps.

This coral was named by Alex Agrusa who originally acquired the coral from Michelle Todoverto. We do not exactly know where Michelle had acquired the coral from originally. Alex kept the coral for about a year before distributing any fragments. He named it as his version (Raptors) of the original Peace Coral which was distributed back in 2006. That Peace Coral was a Favites and its names was related to its basic color pattern. The original Peace Coral had corallites that were pink and coral ridges that were green. That was the opposite of the War Coral, which was red with green centers. Thus it was called the Peace Coral. The original Peace Coral was difficult to keep at that time and most reef aquarist lost their seeds. Reeffarmers retired our Peace Coral LE in 2008 due to a loss of our seed.
