The R66 Aussie Peach Tree Table has corallites that are edged in bright orange and pink pigments that can blend together into a peach coloration. Polyps are mostly dark red with an extended tentacle that can be colored bright green. There are also patches of green that can occur on corallite edges and branch stems.

The entire seed of this coral is imaged above. It was a salvaged branch from an imported table Acropora from Australia. At Route 66 Marine the fragment was called the Aussie Orange Pink Table Acropora. Reeffarmers decided to call the coral the Aussie Peach Tree Table based on the orange, pink and green pigments that occur in the coral.

Reeffarmers is currently maintaining a seed section of this coral in a 8 foot Raceway Gyre BiZonal system. The parent sections of this coral were lost at Route 66 Marine during the spring of 2015 due to heat and system related problems. The first edition and seed are the only known surviving fragments of this coral.

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 strong to moderate light and moderate to strong water current. The first edition fragment of this coral was sold to Bruce Siddall. Recommended list price on March 31st 2015 was $165 for a small fragment.
