ORA Pearlberry Acropora
The Pearlberry acro is said to be one of the most impressive corals that is offered by ORA. This coral resembles Acropora desalwii but nevertheless has not yet been conclusively identified (even though it has been cultivated beyond several generations of the original wild colonies). Many love it for its spiny, delicate branches; others love it for its handsome coloration. This strain features a pearlescent base with pale lime green corallites and purplish tips that constrast with each other in a wonderfully peculiar way. Better yet, color can vary somewhat depending upon factors such as lighting (for example, how pale the green is, or far the purple extends down the tip), so each mature colony is unique. The ORA Pearlberry Acropora is sure to please even the pickiest coral afficionado!
This exquisite strain prefers a placement of mid-upper tank height under medium-high lighting with moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Pearlberry Acropora
Grown under captive conditions, captive-bred livestock offers several significant advantages over wild counterparts. It tends to be more disease resistant and harbors fewer pests. It is better capable of handling shipping/acclimation stress and therefore is specially adapted to living in an aquarium. By purchasing captive-bred Pearlberry acros, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable!
