One of the incredible red rimmed chalice corals. The Stolen Fire Chalice has a thick
solid red rim that even develops on new cut areas. Sometimes turquoise colored rays
can develop on top of the red edge band. This can give the red band a flame or fire
appearence. Corallites are colored solid red. The surface of the coral is solid
turquoise. Under 10,000 K it appears more green turquoise, while under 20,000 K it
appears more blue turquoise. Red and orange lines can also develop on the surface.
The turquoise base also contains some darker rays around the corallite eyes.
The Stolen Fire Chalice was named and acquired by
Efrain Corals. They
picked up the coral directly from Reef Aquariums of Miami during the 2011 SE-CFM
coral show. Reeffarmers picked up our seed section from Efrain Corals during that same
coral show. The coral was originally exported from Australia. Efrain Corals currently
recommends moderate light and moderate water current.
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 to weak light levels from a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The
first edition fragment of this coral was sold to private coral collector James Wensil.
