Turbinaria reniformis Colony

Turbinaria corals are generally either yellow or green. There are however some very rare Turbinaria reniformis specimens that have yellow edges, yellow polyps with a plate section that can develop a strong blue pigment. A picture of such a coral can be found in Corals of the World Volume 2 Page 396 Image 4. Bill Schroer of Ponape managed to locate a specimen with this color morph. He sent the large coral to a business associate of We have managed to acquire a large section of this colony and are making captive grown fragments from the plating colony. This coral is currently being farmed by Steve Tyree and it is located within one of his 125 gallon naturally filtered Tri-Zonal EG reefs. Fragments consist of plates attached to small rocks. This particular growth morph appears to handle fragmentation very well. is allowed to distribute 1 farmed fragment of this coral per month. Price is currently $60 per medium sized fragment. The monthly limited edition reservation schedule can be found below.
