The Green Goblet Acropora is an amazing coral with prominant thick corallite walls that are colored bright green under 20,000 K halides. This color can appear more yellow green under different lighting schemes. Main branch stems are purple blue. Polyps are colored dark blue. In the only original seed colony imaged above, some of the branches have corallites that only have minor amounts of green on corallite edges. We believe that areaas getting more light exposure will develop more intense yellow corallite pigments.

Reeffarmers selected this coral along with Eric Cammano's help from a large selection of coral at the Route 66 Marine facility in March 2015. The extensive green corallites really made the coral quite unique looking. At that time we called the coral green cups Acropora. Reeffarmers acquired a seed fragment and a first edition fragment. This coral did not survive the heat and operational problems Route experienced when they setup their growout system. The original colony stub and two extra fragments were not present when Route 66 Marine ceased operations on July 3rd 2015.

Reeffarmers is currently maintaining a seed section of this coral in a 8 foot Raceway Gyre BiZonal system. 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 water current. The first edition fragment of this coral was sold at Reef Currents 2015. We do not have the buyers name on file. List price on July 13th 2015 is $115 for a small fragment.
