Flaming Sunrise from Candy Corals is one of a Helluva Acropora speciosa


Candy Corals from Canada, recently acquired an amazing Acropora speciosa from Malaysia that they are calling the Flaming Sunrise. We’ve long been fans of these particular deepwater and elegant shaped species of Acropora that we used to get from Indonesia, but have never we’ve seen it in that particular coloration.

It’s a good sign that we are starting to see some corals from the Indo-Malaysian area popping up again. And the beauty of these corals, is that they are not coming from clean, gin-like transparent waters but from dirty, turbid water.

These corals are not adapted to very high water quality, and thus acclimate very well to aquarium maintenance and have the option to become ‘designer’ aquarium corals.In that case, this particular piece was collected in a shallow, 4-8 m (12-25 ft) deep, Acropora-covered reef in the North east of Borneo, very close to the Indonesian and Filipino border.
