ORA Frogskin Acropora
Some of the most interesting corals, and certainly the ones that hold our attention for the longest time, are those species and strains that exhibit variable morphology. This unpredictability under different growing conditions lends a feeling of suspense over the long term and rewards us with a specimen that is unique to your particular tank. The ORA Frogskin Acropora is one such coral. This attractive strain from ORA features stocky branches, a bumpy texture and coloration that ranges from yellow green to blue green (often with shades of purple, depending on lighting conditions). The fat, tubular corallites and some of the polyps have a faint bluish hue. As it develops, its branches fuse together to make thick, solid plates and a solid center from which new branches extend.
This beast thrives in any tank placement so long as it receives medium-high lighting with moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Frogskin Acropora
Captive-bred corals offer significant advantages over their wild counterparts. Because they are grown in captivity, they they are specially adapted to living in an aquarium. They are generally more disease resistant, harbor fewer pests and are better capable of handling shipping/acclimation stress. By purchasing cultured ORA Frogskin Acropora, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms, helping to make our hobby more sustainable!
