ORA Pink Damicornis
Pocillopora damicornis is a shallow water SPS coral species that occurs widely across the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Sometimes called a cluster coral, it ranges from brown to green, purple and occasionally pink in color. Aquarists regard it as among the easiest and hardiest of the SPS corals. Indeed, it is an exceptionally fast-growing coral that may outcompete other weaker or slower-growing neighbors. In fact, it is known to spawn in the home aquarium and may also reproduce via polyp bailout. While its prolific reproduction is welcomed by many hobbyists, some find it to be somewhat invasive (something to consider). The ORA Pink Damicornis has short, delicate branches. It grows into dense, round colonies. It is generally smaller than the Pink & Green or the Green Damicornis strains. It is also believed to be less invasive than some brown and green strains that are available.
The ORA Pink Damicornis is best placed at the middle-top level of the tank under medium-high lighting in moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Pink Damicornis
Captive-bred corals offer significant advantages over their wild counterparts. Because they are grown in captivity, 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 Pocillopora, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
