The Ant Insignis Frag (Acropora insignis) gets it name from the Ant Atoll, a small coral reef in Micronesia. It has a green base color with pink-purple on the tips and new growth.

Acropora is one of the most popular and easily recognizable corals in the aquarium trade. It is easy to propagate and, if given the proper conditions, not difficult to maintain. Lighting must be high and supplemental planktonic foods can be given occasionally. 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.

ORA Frags are propagated by Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums, the largest marine ornamental fish hatchery in the world. They continuously develop new frags and many are available in very limited quantities. "MIMF" frags are grown at the Marshall Islands Mariculture Farm on the island of Majuro. This facility opened in 2003 to grow giant clams and coral frags, including many that are exclusive to this small group of islands. We are proud to offer ORA's Marshall Island corals as part of our coral frag collection.
