ORA Plum Crazy Acropora
You probably guessed right: Plum Crazy is a plum to deep purple acro. Particularly when kept under very bright illumintion, new growth exhibits a gorgeous purple with tiny blue highlights at the very tip. Even these relatively small frags are incredibly attractive, resembling a jagged chunk of rough amethyst. It has shorter, thicker branches and forms corymbose (flat-topped cluster with individual branches growing upward from various points of the base to approximately the same height) or pillow-like colonies. As one might guess from looking at these amazingly beautiful frags: This strain is absolutely stunning when grown into a large, healthy colony. Stands out in any aquascape!
The ORA Plum Crazy Acropora prefers a placement of mid-upper tank height under medium-high lighting with moderate-strong water flow.

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