MIMF Mystic Green Torch Coral Frag - Euphyllia sp. (ORA)
Torch Corals get their name from the brightly colored tips of their tentacles, which gives the appearance of a lighted torch. Color varies from grey or tan to green with colored tips of brown or green.
These corals are aggressive in nature. Their tentacles can extend several inches and have a powerful sting that can damage other specimens. For this reason, they need to be placed far enough away from other corals so as not to cause damage or death to the other corals.
The Torch Coral must be place upright as tissue damage easily leads to the death of individual heads. Polyps are long with a single rounded end, usually extending during the day and retracting somewhat in the evening. This coral should be placed in an area with just enough water movement to gently move the extended polyps.
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.
