A new ORA coral was released this week. We should have some next week.

Per ORA's Press Release-

NEW ORA Gecko Green Acro

The ORA Gecko Green Acro is a staghorn type Acropora which grows irregularly spaced, twisted branches with prominent corallites. The tissue color is light yellow-green on the branches and darker green at the base. Small reddish polyps dot the entire coral, but don't extend past the lip of the corallites.

In photographs the Gecko Green Acro appears similar to the ORA Green Velvet Acro, but it differs by having more pronounced, rounded corallites, different colored polyps and an overall thinner appearance. We notice best coloration with this coral in lower light levels and we would recommend this as a great beginner coral. The ORA Gecko Green Acro is a great coral for filling in lower levels of large reef tanks where high light demanding Acroporas would perish.

Frags will be approximately 2 inches and well encrusted on an ORA black plastic plug.

NEW ORA Micronesian Mauve Acro

The Micronesian Mauve Acro is a delicate branching Acropora with a pastel purple and pink coloration. The short fine branches of this coral are tightly spaced and give this coral a compact bushy shape. This coral comes from a farm near our Marshall Island facility where it is maricultured by locals in pristine lagoon waters. You can look forward to spotting some cool commensal acro crabs hanging on between branches. Like all maricultured corals this new addition will require several weeks under aquarium lighting to reach its full potential.

Frags will be 2 to 2 ½ inches and well encrusted on a white plastic plug.
