    Ahoy!

    Is anyone able to ID this litle Acropora of mine?
    Latin name and or hobby/designer name would be much appreciated :)

    Coral grows long thin branches.
    Growth is rather fast.
    The coral seems to be very tough.
    The color under bright Light is a deep purple with neon green tips.
    Under low light, the green tips get longer/ the green overtakes the purple. (See the Frag on the fragrack, which is more to the side with less light)

    Thanks

    Looks kinda like a lokani. Designer name only applies if you know lineage. So give it your own name!! :D

    @BoomCorals Good idea, it does have that deepsea-ish look to it. But I think if it was a lokani it would not like to be placed on top right? (not sure though)

    Another guess was "pacman acropora" any opinions?

    Looks a lot like my Mr. Pac-Man colony. Which I’m not sure if it is a lokani, turaki or cardus acropora.

    That’s not the same as the original poster. Yours looks like a lokani. Totally different species.
