What do you get when an Acropora that develops golden yellow corallite edges, also develops a high density of axial or branch end corallites ? You get the R66 Golden Rings Acropora. Axial polyps edged in golden yellow make numerous golden colored circles within the colony. The main color found in branches and lower corallite areas is a bright powder blue. Between the golden yellow corallite edges and the powder blue branch areas there can be a band where the two pigments mix and develop purple coloration. Polyps are colored bright blue.

This is an Indonesian coral that was given the internal name of Golden Rings at Route 66 Marine. This internal name seemed appropriate and has stayed with the coral until Limited Edition release. The small colony imaged above is the only known seed source for this coral.

Reeffarmers is currently maintaining a seed section of this coral in a 8 foot Raceway Gyre BiZonal system. The parent colony died at Route 66 Marine during their heat and system problems in the spring of 2015. No known fragments were distributed and the seed and first edition 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 moderate light and moderate water current. The first edition fragment of this coral was sold at Reef Currents 2015 to Holly Lostracco. Suggested list price on March 20th 2015 was $150 for a small fragment.
