The OA Natures Image Acropora is an incredibly exotic and one of a kind Acropora. Corallites are flared, cupped and edged with a bright blue pigmentation. Near branch tips the corallites are colored about half blue, while corallites located further down branches are just edged in blue. These lower corallites can also contain a turquoise coloration over the lower section of the corallite. Branch stems are cream to turquoise, while branch sections deep within the colony can be more green in color. Polyps are colored dark blue and partially extend during the daytime.

Another amazing Acropora find by Brian Kim at Oculus Aquatics (OA). Brian culled and selected this exotic Acropora for cultivation. This species morph is one of the more rare colonies at OA and there only existed one such colony when this web page was constructed. All propagated fragments will be produced from the initial seed colony image above.
