Trachyphyllia geoffroyi is imported in such vast numbers from the Indo Pacific, and considerable numbers from Australia, that it’s easy to forget how beautiful ‘Trachies’ can be. Case in point is this mind blowing, jaw-dropping insane Australian Trachyphyllia imported by Route 66 Marine – the word ‘redonkadonk’ comes to mind. In fact, the first thing that came to mind when we saw this Trachie was that it is so stunning and perfect that it deserves a name like the Spirograph Scolymia, so the Redonkadonk Trachie it is.
Not only is this Trachyphyllia a nice large specimen with a perfect balanced shaped and lots of folds, it has crazy awesome color. The black base of the Redonkadonk Trachie vividly contrasts with the neon green center mantle and stripes and the discrete red band highlighting the perimeter of this colony. Now keep in mind these are photos of a fresh imported specimen which is hardly inflated at all. Can you imagine how crazy this coral will appear once it’s settled in under well balanced LED lighting and fully inflated?
Whoever ends up with the Redonkadonk Trachie is going to be a very lucky aquarist. Big thanks to Eric Camaano of Route 66 Marine for sharing pics, more of which can be viewed after the break, including a nice wallpaper for your desktop.
