The Warpaint Chalice is an exotic coral with Darth Maul pigment pattern markings. The main surface is an emerald green color that can also darken in certain conditions. The markings are colored orange to yellow orange. Corallites are surrounded with large raised spikes which contain the orange pigment on their upper surfaces. Some fine orange lines can also radiate outward from the corallites. The surface of the coral between the corallites can also contain smaller spikes and they are also colored orange on their upper surfaces. A fluorescent green pigment can occur on the larger spikes. Corallite mouths also contain exotic pigment patterns. The mouth itself is outlined with pigment that varies from green to yellow. Around the mouth are located flower petal like pigment markings.

Reeffarmers acquired our seed fragment directly from Morgan Wood of Captain's Corals. Morgan acquired his colony from a wholesaler in June of 2010. The coral was imported within a mixed shipment from Indonesia. It was originally only brown with a hint of orange streaks. After being maintained within his system for a few months, the striking streaked pattern developed. Morgan recommends moderate to strong lighting and moderate water currents.

Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of this coral for 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 strong light levels from a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The first edition fragment of this coral was sold on our Buy It Now web page. Introductory list price was $100 for a small single corallite first edition fragment.
