Featured Coral of the Week 7/17/17 – From Joe Knows Reefs




It’s 7/17/17 and our featured coral of the week is coming to us from Joe Knows Reefs.  This coral that Joey Nichols is working on is a new one that we haven’t seen before.  Joey hasn’t even named it yet and he’s looking for some help naming this stunning acropora species.  If you can think of a name for it please post it below or list it on the Joe Knows Reefs Facebook page.

The coral is an Acropora tenuis that was imported from Indonesia.  Joey is holding this coral for a little bit longer and he’s keeping this under and ATI T5 Sunpower 8 bulb fixture with Reefbrite XHO LED strips. Congrats to Joey for finding this gem!
