ORA Pink Stylophora
Here’s the sort of coral that just about any hobbyist could keep–and love! The first thing anyone would notice about the ORA Pink Stylo is its vibrant purply pink coloration. Because of its small size and compact growth form, as well as its relatively slow growth, it is totally appropriate for tight spots in the aquascape or even for smaller tanks. It has short but stout, rounded branches. Its polyps are rather tiny compared to other stylos such as the ORA Purple Stylo or ORA Green Stylo. Both the polyps and the base exhibit the pink coloration. The colors of this strain vary somewhat under different light intensities; it can be a dark pink in the shade or magenta in very bright light. Many keepers hold the opinion that this stylo develops its most attractive pigmentation under brighter lighting; however, it is best to acclimate this coral slowly to high light conditions. The ORA Pink Stylophora can be kept at any tank level under low-high lighting with moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Pink 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 stylos, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
