View Full Version : What coral is this?

We bought this coral a while back and the color was not that great at the time. It has colored up a lot and now we would like to know what it is. It is mostly purple with green highlights. We thought maybe pearlberry, but the structure seems to be wrong.

Looks like Acropora plana. I have a colony just like it.

Just googled it and I think you are right. Now the question is, what does it generally cost?

I agree, this looks like a plana, and a very pretty one at that!
