ORA Red Planet Acropora
There is hardly a more “classic” coral strain out there than the Red Planet acro from ORA. And its enduring popularity is pretty easy to understand! This tabling Acropora features dark red polyps and pink-magenta corallites that pop over a glowing green base. Its red coloration is one of the reddest reds you’ll find in an acro. The green color varies a bit from straight fluorescent to bronzy green; the green coloration is most likely to appear under extremely intense lighting. Growth tips may be considerably paler. This is a very hardy and forgiving strain that is perfectly suited to beginner SPS keepers!
The ORA Red Planet Acropora may be placed just about anywhere in the tank so long as it receives medium-high light intensity and moderate-strong water flow. See below for more information.

The Benefits of Farmed Red Planet Acropora
Captive-bred livestock offers big advantages over its wild-caught counterparts. Cultured in captivity, it is better adapted to living in an aquarium, tends to be more disease resistant and harbors fewer pests. It is also better able to handle shipping/acclimation stress. By purchasing captive-bred Red Planet corals, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable!
