The golden coloration of this corals corallites are plainly visible. Also note that oddly
a couple of the corallites are green. The leading green edge of the coral can be seen in
the upper left. The surface of the coral is pink, but the left side of this image shows
how some areas of the surface can be slightly bluer in coloration.

Another interesting chalice from John at Your Reef. The YR Golden Eye Chalice
has some brilliant golden colored corallite eyes. Additionally there are some
interesting qualities to the surface pigments. The surface of the coral is
primarily pink, but some areas develop a more blue coloration. A few corallites
on the original coral were colored fluorescent green instead of the normal
brilliant golden color. It is possible that new corallites begin green colored
and then morph to the golden color as they fully develop. The leading edge of
the coral also develops a bright green ring. The corallites of this coral are
flat and they do not protrude. There are small surfaces protrusions (spikes)
that occur on the corals surface.
This coral was obviously named for its brilliant golden corallite eyes. It is a
Your Reef (YR) original and
was transhipped from Indonesia by John at Your Reef. The coral was acquired in Late
2009 and it was only moderately colored. Its pigments intensified over 6 months
in captivity. John recommends moderate light and moderate to strong water flow.
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 light levels from a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The
price of this coral per small fragment consisting of a single corallite will be
determined by the First Edition Silent Auction.
Please note Reeffarmers is no longer taking new reservations for new corals. The current
economic conditions are not supportive for reservations that extend for a few years into
the future. After this first edition is distributed, we will sell future captive produced
fragments on either our Buy It Now page or via another silent auction. We will still list
exotic corals as Limited Editions and will continue to build web pages for them.
