Royal Plum Acropora Reeffarmers Seed. This rare Acropora from the
South China Sea area has a solid base Royal Plum
or purple pigmentation. On top of this base coloration
the coral develops intense green pigments in areas of the colony
that are exposed to intense light.
This helps develop some very odd patterns. The corals polyps extend during the day
and they are slightly
bushy and appear to have green pigments. Polyps are retracted for this image.
