Picture of the Week – 12/13 – 12/19


Neon Green Tipped Acropora
Pictured in this week’s picture of the week is a neon green tipped Acropora. This particular Acro originally had a tan colored base, but quickly developed neon green tips under low nutrient conditions. Under heavy actinics, these tips would glow, almost like the end of a candlestick. The growth form for this particular colony is a bushy form. It sends branches out in almost every direction, with secondary branches coming off of those as well.
