MIMF Green Hydnophora Frag - Hydnophora sp. (ORA)
Horn Coral (Hydnophora sp.) is similar to Acropora but lacks the individual polyp formations. It is instead covered in fleshy tissue which is typically brown or intense flourescent green. The branches can resemble thick tree branches or the coral can be found in a more encrusting/plating formation.
Hydnophora rely heavily on their zooxanthallae algae for food and need high light to preserve color and provide energy. They should not be placed close to other corals as they may sting nearby competitors.
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.
