The Reefers CoveRC Frogskin Tortuosa
has developed a green frogskin grafting in lower lighting conditions. This Acropora is probably
not an A. tortuosa, but has developed that tortuosa stag-like growth formation. The green
frogskin pigments travel up branches in a manner similar to grafted pigments. The green tends
to stay within the branch stem areas. It appears that more green will develop in lower light
conditions, while the branches can develop a brighter purple blue in strong light conditions.
Reeffarmers is maintaining a seed section of this coral in a 8 foot Raceway Gyre BiZonal system.
This system is naturally filtered with a semi-cryptic zone and a reef flat exposed zone. In this
captive reef the coral is positioned to receive weak to moderate light and moderate
water current. The first edition fragment of this coral was sold privately.
Recommended list price on February 20th 2015 is $150 for a small fragment.
