The R66 Old Glory Table is an Acropora table with a patriotic pigmentation pattern. Exotic flared corallites are colored bright pink red, while prominent axial corallites are bright blue. Polyps have a large extended tentacle that is creamish white colored. Some of the polyp tentacles have bright red pigmentation.

This amazing table coral from Australia was one of the most exotically colored tables that Route 66 Marine has seen. It was internally referred to as the Snowcone table by Route 66 Marine and Reeffarmers suggested the name Old Glory Table. The OG colony may have been faded due to stress, but her colors still shine.

Reeffarmers is currently maintaining a seed section of this coral in a 8 foot Raceway Gyre BiZonal system. The original colony was not pulled out of the Route 66 Marine facility before the company was closed. We believe that it had died prior to then as tables can be somewhat difficult especially when they are large colonies. Since it was a large colony, a couple of fragments could have been distributed by Route 66 Marine. There is however no surviving parent colony.

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 water current. The first edition fragment of this coral was sold to Michael Paletta, while the second edition was sold to Matt Jtineant at Birmingham in Leeds Alabama on May 17th. Suggested list price on March 19th 2015 was $145 for a small fragment.
