Rose Acropora millepora Colony

Rose Acropora millepora Colony

Pictured above is another one of my favorites, the rose colored Acropora millepora. The deep red and elongated polyps give this coral a beautiful fuzzy red appearance that isn’t overly abundant in reef aquaria. Typically, blue and green corals dominate the reef scene, but red corals made a big comeback in recent years with the release of the ORA Red Planet and the rare Strawberry Shortcake Acro. The particular individual colony pictured above pales in comparison to those amazing acros, but it a good looking coral nonetheless.
