Notes: This Tricolor Valida is aquacultured by ORA here in the US. It is not commonly available and makes a wonderful addition to any SPS reef.
The Tricolor Valida Acropora coral requires moderate water currents and intense lighting provided by metal halides to maintain its color. It is important that proper calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium levels are maintained. Use of Kalkwasser Mix or a calcium reactor will be of great benefit.
Place the ORA Tricolor Valida Acropora on an exposed rock along the top of the aquarium where currents will be able to supply it with necessary nutrients and trace elements.
Vivid Aquariums recommends feeding SPS corals with Oyster-Feast and/or Roti-Feast.
