ORA Green Stylophora
The ORA Green Stylophora (also known as Cats Paw Coral) features thick, compact short branches with green or teal-blue polyps. While it is remarably similar to the Green Birdsnest in coloration, it has heavier branches with very rounded tips. It could be describes as “plump” on account of its branches, which are very thick and stubby and grow in clusters. The skeleton of the ORA Green Stylo is unusually dense; while this makes it a bit more difficult to frag, it also means that it is less prone to breakage compared to other branching SPS corals. Like many other stylos, this coral’s compact growth form is perfect for fitting into a cramped spot or into a smaller tank. The ORA Green Stylophora can be kept at any tank level under low-high lighting and moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Green Stylophora
Because they are cultured in under aquarium conditions, captive-bred corals offer several advantages over wild-caught specimens. They tend to be more disease resistant and harbor fewer pests. And, they are more capable of handling shipping/acclimation stress! By purchasing captive-bred ORA Green Stylophora, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
