Overview

The ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral is an exciting green color variety of Acropora nana coral sure to add a calming, refreshing visual aesthetics to your reef aquarium landscape. The ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral demonstrates a compact growth habit that, in conjunction with its vibrant green coloration, imparts the appearance of a well-manicured shrub. The purple tips of the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral resemble petite purple flower blossoms to further accentuate its lovely arboreal appearance. Thoughtful and delicate placement of the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral is essential as it is somewhat brittle and is susceptible to breakage.

The ideal aquarium setup for the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral is an established reef aquarium with high lighting conditions achieved with T-5 fluorescent, powerful LEDs, or the more intense metal halide light fixtures. To maximize the growth rate of your ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral, it is imperative to maintain high pH, alkalinity, and calcium levels and to keep phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible.

In addition to high lighting conditions and high water quality, the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral benefits from medium to strong, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This is best accomplished with a wavemaker or multiple powerheads. For continued good health, the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral requires the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, magnesium supplements, as well as trace elements. Keep in mind that under the right conditions, Acropora corals are exceptionally fast-growing and will most-likely require additional supplementation, especially calcium, to sustain its growth.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral supplies the coral with a majority of its nutrition. However, the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Purple Tip Nana Acropora Coral will benefit from the addition of various types of phyto and zooplankton.
