This is without a doubt one of the most colorful Favites pentagona corals that we have ever seen in the captive market. And the coral was discovered and found on a natural reef by one of the heavies in the exotic captive coral market. The JF Day Glo Favites pentagona contains three distinct pigment regions. A solid bright lime green corallite center. Radiating outward from the green is a ring of brightly colored yellow gold rays. The outer edges of the corals corallites are colored a bright pink red. Patches of blue pigments can develop on ridges in some limited areas.

This coral was originally found by Jason Fox Signature Corals in Indonesia. Jason was working with a collector and he actually found this spectacular coral while on a dive down to 70 feet. That depth puts the coral close to the realm of a deepwater low light coral. Jason recommends low light and moderate water current.

Reeffarmers acquired our seed directly from Jason Fox in a coral trade brokered during the Virginia Beach coral show in late 2013. On the way back from Virginia Beach, Reeffarmers dropped the seed into the capable hands of Rit who owns and operates the reef store The Atlanta Aquarium. At the time, neither Reeffarmers nor Rit knew what the Favites was called or how it was collected, but we knew it was fairly awesome looking. During Reeffarmers trip out to the SouthEastern Coral Farmers Market coral show in May 2014, we acquired our seed back from Rit. He had tripled the size of the original fragment. Rit cut the seed in half and both Reeffarmers and The Atlanta Aquarium got a section. We then verified the Reeffarmers seed fragment by sending an image to Jason Fox. He informed us that this was the JF Day Glo. We were stunned. Jason said, "Hey I told you it was a good coral".

Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of this coral for in an 8 foot raceway Gyre BiZonal system. This system is naturally filtered with a semi-cryptic zone and a reef flat exposed zone. In Steve's captive reef the coral is positioned to receive weak to moderate light levels from a 400 watt SE 20,000 K metal halide. Retail fragments of this coral originally listed for $349 in May 2014. Pricing in early 2016 is about $200 for a medium fragment. Rit at the Atlanta Aquarium has the coral growing real well so price levels should drop more by the end 2016.
