ORA Green Tip Orange Birdsnest
As many of us know, certain coral strains are the best choice for certain types of aquaria. For example, the Green Tip Orange Birdsnest is perfect for larger tanks where there is lots of free growing space. This very fast-growing Seriatopora has stubby, smoothly rounded branch tips. Its long, smooth branches create a nice open structure compared to many of the other, more compact, birdsnest coral varieties. It is also quite colorful with a rusty orange body and turqoise branch tips. Polyps may develop a blue sheen that looks magnificent over the orange under actinic lighting. This is definitely one of those varieties looks much better in person than in photographs! The ORA Green Tip Orange Birdsnest is best placed at bottom-middle tank height with medium-high light levels moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Green Tip Orange Birdsnest
Because it is cultured in under aquarium conditions, captive-bred livestock offers several advantages over wild-caught specimens. It tends to be more disease resistant and harbors fewer pests. It more often accepts prepared aquarium diets. And, it is more capable of handling shipping/acclimation stress! By purchasing captive-bred Seriatopora, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
