ORA Green Tip Pink Birdsnest
No SPS coral collection is truly complete without a birdsnest coral. Not only is the delicate, impossibly fragile growth form a work of natural art, but its colors can be quite fantastic. While the more common pink birdsnest strains are impressive enough, the ORA Green Tip Pink Birdsnest is about as pretty as a stony coral can get. This beauty features a perfect contrast between two light pastel secondary colors–a purply pink body with a very soft green over the tips. Its polyps are bluish green. Its branches have rounded tips and are widely spaced apart. It should receive good water flow into the deepest parts of the tangled mass that develops as the colony grows and the branches become increasingly dense.
The ORA Green Tip Pink Birdsnest is not especially sensitive; it tolerates a middle-top tank placement, medium-high light levels and moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Green Tip Pink Birdsnest
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 birdsnest corals, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
