The Ice Fire Echinata coral is one of the most incredibly pigmented Acropora echinata corals that we have seen in captivity. It has a brilliant blue pigmentation at the branch tips that extends downward toward blue cream colored branch stems. This is a true Acropora echinata species that has elongated corallites. Polyps can extend during the daytime photoperiod.

The coral has been successfully maintained within captivity since the fall of 2004. Reeffarmers acquired our seed fragment and our First Edition fragment from Karl Unarce of Sacramento California. Karl acquired this coral from Rich Stevens (Sandollar) when Rich left the hobby and sold his entire colony to Karl. The Ice Fire Echinata had originally come from James Lee who ran the reef store Aquascene in the Bay Area of California. James had only distributed 5 fragments to local reefers before the coral was acquired by Rich.

Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of the Ice Fire Echinata for in an 125 gallon naturally filtered Tri-Zonal Reef Aquarium. In Steve's captive reef the coral is positioned to receive moderate to strong light under a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium Metal Halide. The coral requires at least moderate illumination to maintain its coloration. The Limited Edition price is currently $125 per small fragment.

Please note Reeffarmers is no longer taking new reservations for LE corals. The current economic conditions are not supportive for reservations that extend for a few years into the future. We currently sell harvested fragments on either our Buy It Now page or via a silent auction. The silent auction will be listed here and on the Buy It Now page.
