Reordered a ORA Pearlberry from LA today. Previous order came in pieces from shipping and didn’t make it. Definitely a pricey coral, but I want the true lineage and want to support ORA for the great work they do. I keep getting drawn to this acro and it needs to be a part of my tank. I would love to know the history of this beautiful piece and how ORA acquired it/lost it/reaquired it. Not much came up with a internet search. All Pearlberry discussion,photos welcome!

Cool, thanks authentic! What was the time frame that it doubled in size? I also hear high light\high flow.

I’ll need to post a shot of mine. Just got it a few months ago. Starting to show some blue on the tips.

I bought a huge frag of one at a show recently. I thought I was duped for a few months. It was all green. I was POed.

Magically, recently, all of this light teal blue goodness is creeping up from under all that green. It’s being hit with a lot of daylight spectrum now. I’ll try to get a pic.

One of my favorite old school corals. I used to have a large colony about 7 years ago. I moved and took down my tank then. I just started a new tank and scored a nice frag, hopefully it will grow into a nice colony!

I couldnt agree more! I have most of the high end stuff, but the raw beauty of Pearlberry when fully colored keeps my attention the longest.

I got one from ORA farms about two weeks ago; pretty small, but has some great color.

I agree on what others have noted: high light for sure.
Yea small for Ora, but massive compared to some other vendors :)
Keep the pics coming guys. I have never grown this piece, was a rare piece for a while.
