Barrier Reef's Aquarium Blog
Our friends at ORA have been working hard in 2010. This year, ORA brought the hobby many new captive bred offerings. There has been two species of captive bred Mandarin Dragonets, as well as Snowflake and Platinum Clowns. ORA also introduced new Gobies and Psuedochromis. They saved a special treat for the end of the year though. After being unavailable for roughly a year, Phil’s Granulosa is back! This neon green Acropora sp. has unique, smooth branches and becomes quite beautiful as it grows into a colony. It is very sensitive to Alkalinity changes so make sure you keep your parameters stable or you will be visited by the cursed “bottom-up” STN.
