What a great name for a fiery colored chalice that has bright red surface pigments along with fiery
orange (yellow/gold) ridges and protrusions. The Dragon Breath chalice can also develop a distinctly
colored growing edge or outer rim. That edge is typically colored green/yellow and chalices with
colored edges are considered rare and unique. Within the corallites eyes there are patches of bright
blue turquoise that can contain outward radiated rays or bands of color. A dark band of red pigmentation
can also develop inside the outer growth edge.
Reeffarmers acquired our Dragon Breath Chalice directly from
Reefer's Cove in the fall of 2012.
The coral was originally discovered and acquired in June 2012 by Jorge at Reefer's Cove. He has
been maintaining this coral under T5 lighting and recommends moderate chalice light levels.
Water current recommendations are low to moderate. Reefer's Cove states this spectacular chalice
will fragment and grow very well in captivity. It appears to have completed the transition to
captivity very well.
Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of this coral for Reeffarmers.com 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 250 watt DE 20,000 K metal halide. The first retail edition fragment of this coral
was sold privately to Jack Lenhardt. Retail fragments of this coral have listed up to $285.
