ORA was busy today, releasing a new coral available to local fish stores. Named the “Red planet’, perhaps a pun about mars, with striking red colors we can see why. Obtained from a hobbyist from Europe, they have been working on this coral for the past two years, showing very good growth out of this SPS. “It is predominantly vivid red with how pink tips and a metallic green base. fragments of this coral closely resemble what most might call a Acropora millepora or prostrata but it grows into a tightly spaced, flat topped, true table coral as it matures.” No word on price, but we don’t expect this species to break the bank.
