21 Jun, 2019
Plant City, Florida
Geographic Origin: Southern Great Barrier Reef
Light Level: Moderate
Flow Level: Moderate to High
Care Level: Moderate
Notes: This coral was hand-selected in Australia for ACI Aquaculture, and was collected in an area of deep, silty water at a depth of 65 feet (20 m).
The particular reef where this coral was discovered features heavy upwelling flows. This coral was not cut up for aquaculture, but was sold intact as a showpiece specimen at Reef-A-Palooza Orlando earlier in 2019.
