Named correctly!I guess I should put this in my build thread too. Perhaps the nicest looking Acropora colony I've ever seen in captivity I was extremely suspicious of the hype around this coral and did not think any of the little stunted frags I saw for crazy prices would be worth it. I started with a really nice healthy frag and it has grown really well for me.

Is it me or are smooth skin acropora simply the best looking sps, ever? Mix in a couple millies, but honestly, I could have a handful of smoothies and I’d be completely content. Thanks for sharing!Here is another one I've been quietly sitting on.
WWC Ari's Avalanche
One of the nicest and most exceptional "deepwater" acros I have ever seen. The most intense purple of any coral and with long smooth branches and fluorescent green polyps to boot. I have two small colonies going, one of them is totally nuts, with 2-3" long smooth and gracefully curving branches...unfortunately that on is in a terrible spot to photograph:
However this one isn't too bad looking either
Some people say it is a lokani, but it grows differently than any lokani I have tried before (and has survived, unlike all other lokani in my tank).
You've noticed a trend in my collection? Haha..it's not just you. I've been on a quest for a couple of years.Is it me or are smooth skin acropora simply the best looking sps, ever?
