Swimming over a very healthy reef next to a hydrothermal vent, we couldn’t help to notice how healthy the corals were. We took some water samples and found few off parameters.
On a recent trip to North Sulawesi, in Indonesia, immediately to the south of the Philippines, right in the heart of the coral triangle, we discovered two insane, unique, brightly colored colonies, growing almost right on top of each other, and color-perfect candidates for reef tanks.
Our regular visit to Wen-Ping Su and Bali Aquarich was long overdue. It never disappoints. As usual Mr. Su had a couple of surprises up his sleeves; he greeted us with 2 new hybrids of Centropyge dwarf angelfish.
So, was your answer to our “Thorny Mystery Coral” correct? Vincent Chalias of Bali Aquarium shares the scoop on a particularly unique coral that’s now being maricultured in Indonesia.
