Ultra Tenuis Coral - Acropora tenuis
Acropora is one of the most popular and easily recognisable corals in the aquarium trade. It is easy to propogate and, if given the proper conditions, not difficult to maintain. Lighting must be high and supplemental planktonic foods can be given occassionally. Trace minerals and calcium levels should also be kept high for proper skeletal formation. Flow should be indirect but moderately strong to help bring food to and carry waste away from the colony.
With more than 350 documented species of acropora around the world, colors and formations are practically limitless. The same species can look vastly different depending on where it is growing on the reef. Colors can vary from browns to blue, green, or pinks. Most commonly kept in the aquarium trade are the neon green, blue and purple varieties.
