Laura’s Purple Polyp is a compact branching coral that displays a beautiful emerald green base coloration. However, the real highlight of this piece is the teal tipped branches and bright purple polyps.
ORA purchased this coral in 2011 as an Australian “Purple Polyp Nasuta”. In addition to being hardy and fast growing, the vivid colors are similar to some of the most sought after corals in the trade. The best coloration is achieved with higher kelvin, high intensity lighting, but acclimate to very strong lighting slowly to avoid the loss of green color.
