ORA Indo Purple Tip Staghorn Acropora
It easy to argue that some of the “sticks” (those skinny, sharp-tipped, long branching Acropora) are among the most impressive varieties of SPS coral in the trade. The Indo Purple Tip Staghorn from ORA is a fine example among this group. While it features nice, long branches with sharply tapered tips, it grows from a dense, thickened base. Like other staghorns, it grows into large “airy” masses that may host small dither fish species such as dartfish, small damselfish, etc. This highly distinctive coral strain boasts jaw-dropping colors with a lavender to deep purple base and bright blue growing tips. It looks even more amazing when set in contract with a neighboring pale colored variety (such as pink birdsnest). Definitely a stand-out strain!
A highly adaptable strain, it may be placed at any tank height under medium-high lighting with moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Indo Purple Tip Staghorn Acropora
Grown in captivity, captive-bred livestock offers several significant advantages over wild specimens. It tends to be more resistant to disease, harbors fewer pests and is better capable of handling shipping/acclimation stress; therefore, it is specially adapted to living in an aquarium. By purchasing captive-bred Indo Purple Tip acros, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable!
