    are there any red acroporas or similar that glow neon red under actinics

    Hello every one I am going with a all florescent scheme in my mixed reef nano. I am wondering if there are any acropora or similar branching sps corals that glow red under actinic lighting like my zoas do. Thanks everyone.

    Hello,
    Although there are a few red SPS (Red Planet, A. cytherea) I don't know of any that fluoresce.

    expand the pallet

    Try looking at chalices to place around the shaded zones. Watermelon is flaming hot under actinic w/gold eyes. Orange Eye is cool, and Mummy Eye. Cyphastria Meteor Shower blankets surface rocks. Red Planet has subtle magenta coloring. For fast growing red "eye candy" monti's w/Hydnopora branching green is a show stopper! Also look for tabeling green millie, it shows yellow florescence. HAVE FUN!
