ORA Pink & Green Damicornis
Pocillopora damicornis is regarded as one of the hardiest and least demanding of all SPS corals. The ORA Pink & Green Damicornis is a slender branched Pocillopora that features a green base and pink branch tips. Both the green and the pink are a light, muted hue, giving this coral a very pleasant “soft” look. And even though the subtle beauty of this coral is striking and unique enough to warrant referrence in its trade name, that isn’t even the most memorable aspect of its appearance. Indeed, the white dots at the end of each tentacle are truly marvelous! These white tips highlight the most attractive part of Pocillopora in general, which is the way its many tiny polyps dance around in strong water currents. Do be aware that this coral is quite prolific and is capable producing larvae that settle in other parts of the tank. It thrives at any placement height but appreciates medium-intense light and moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Pink & Green Damicornis
Captive-bred livestock offers many advantages over wild-caught specimens. Because it is cultured in captivity, it is better adapted to living in an aquarium. It tends to be more disease resistant and harbors fewer pests. And, it is also better able to handle shipping/acclimation stress! By purchasing captive-bred Pink & Green Damicornis, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
