Overview

The Hawkin's Blue echinata Acropora Coral is a new release from Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums (ORA®). A delicate tubular branched bottle brush Acropora coral, this color variety features stunning sapphire blue polyps. According to ORA, this frag is named after coral facility manager, Robert Hawkins, and originally acquired from a hobbyist in Germany in 2006.

Acropora Coral prefers a high light level of at least 5 watts per gallon provided by metal halide lighting combined with strong intermittent water current within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will require the addition of a two part calcium and buffer supplement in order to maintain a calcium level of 400-450 ppm and dKH of 8-12. It will benefit from the addition of zooplankton.

The Hawkin's Blue echinata is mounted on a small black plastic plug that can be placed easily and securely in or between the rockwork in the reef aquarium.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1" - 2"

Customer Testimonials

Ian G Belmont , CA
One of my favorite ORA acroporas. Hawkins Echinata has the best coloration, especially under 14-20K T5s. Growth rate is on the slower side, but the tips of the coral turn purple under good light and makes the coral look even better.
