Sale price$199.00


1.75" x 1.5" WYSIWYG and fully aquacultured by WWC! This is one of the Acropora which has been in the hobby for almost as long as growing Acropora in reef tanks has been possible. Aquacultured by the well known reef aquarist Michael Paletta and author of the New Marine Aquarium, we here at WWC have been growing this strain of Acro out for more than 12 years now. It used to be the centerpiece of our 500 gallon at the old store on OBT. At its largest it was close to 15" across. The Paletta Pink Tip Acropora is a good grower and will do well medium high in your reef or about 250 par or higher and high alternating flow for best growth and coloration. To really speed up the growth rate of Acropora, target feed them by squirting a small amount of excellent quality SPS frozen food once or twice per week via a large syringe. Best results will be found when you place your recirculation pumps on feeding mode so that the polyps can "catch" the small particles of food floating by.

Lighting = High Light at around 250 to 300 par
Flow = Medium High to High Alternating Flow
Feeding = Broadcast Feeding 2x / weekly with an appropriately sized and good quality SPS food
