ORA Yellow Tipped Stag Acropora
While greenish acros were once quite common in the reef aquarium trade, they have become increasing harder to find–especially verdent stunners like this yellow tipped stag Acropora sp.! Specially selected by ORA for its intense coloration, this lovely strain features a sharply branching skeleton with rather narrow corallites. Its neon green base color is distinctively highlighted with rich gold/yellow tips. Newer growth around the base fades to the same beautiful golden yellow. The polyps are a pretty bluish violet with a turquois blush around the base.
Much like similar staghorns, this is a fast-growing and easy-to-keep coral when provided with good water quality, brighter illumination and plenty of water movement. It may be placed at any level with medium-high light intensity and moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Yellow Tipped Stag Acropora
Captive-bred livestock offers a huge advantage over wild specimens. Because it is 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 Yellow Tipped Stag acros, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
