Super Nova Psammocora profundacella Reeffarmers Seed Colony. The corals bright
green corallite centers are very prominant. In this image the blue pigmented corallite tentacles are extended
and are also visible.
The Super Nova Psammocora profundacella is perhaps one of the most incredibly pigmented Psammocora
corals we have ever seen in captivity. Tentacles on the corals polyps have medium blue pigmentation,
while the main base has a dark purplish/brown. What makes this coral extra special is that the center
of the corallites is colored bright green (see image above). These green centers or spots along with
the spots of blue is what caused Jeromy Carroll to name this coral the Super Nova Psammocora. Jeromy
maintains a web site at www.acoralsource.com . Reeffarmers
acquired our seed fragment directly from Jeromy who has identified this Psammocora as the P. profundacella
species. This coral can also develop a unique ridged corallite pattern (see image below).
Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of this coral for Reeffarmers.com in an 80 gallon
naturally filtered 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 moderate to weak light levels from a
400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The coral appears to develop its best combination of colors when
exposed to moderate light levels. Price is currently $80 per small fragment. The bimonthly limited
edition reservation schedules can be found below.
