WYSIWYG* Anacropora forbesi (briar coral) is a delicate thin branching hard coral that has proven to be a resilient aquacultured species and can tolerate a wider range of lighting and flow than most sps corals. We have found them to grow best in moderate to high lighting (PAR 200-250) with high indirect flow to get the best growth and color. Anacropora forbesi are pretty cool! They have digestive strands that release threadlike tissue with toxins instead of stinging tentacles to kill corals that it comes in contact with.
Our SPS corals are broadcast fed a variety of rotifers and phytoplankton species to ensure healthy tissue and color.
This species is found throughout the Indo Pacific in both areas of shallow fast moving water and in depths as low as 60 feet with slower flow particularly in places like Fiji, Madagascar, Marshall Islands and Australia.
