An amazing coral that was saved by Route 66 Marine as a salvaged fragment from a rare and stressed Marshall Island Acropora. While recovering from shipping stress, the coral developed some very rare bright yellow gold colored polyps. Corallite upper edges tend to develop a bright purple blue pigmentation, while corallite walls appear to develop a pink pigmentation.

The 24 K Efflo name was developed by Route 66 Marine and is based on the corals golden yellow colored polyps. This coral arrived within one of the first couple of Acropora shipments ever sent from the Marshall Islands.

Reeffarmers is currently maintaining a seed section of this coral in a 8 foot Raceway Gyre BiZonal system. There was no surviving colony of this coral at the Route 66 Marine facility at their time of closure. The original colony was small so we are assuming it was lost during the heat and system problems they had in the spring of 2015. So there are only the surviving Reeffarmers seed and the fragments Reeffarmers distributed.

Our 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 at Reef Currents 2015 to Rob McPheron. 2nd Edition was shipped to SniperSPS. 3rd Edition was sold to Elegant Corals. Suggested list price on February 20th 2015 was $225 for a small fragment.
