Coral Line by: Vaidotas Kirsys
Message: "Let it grow :)"

Coral Type: Sub-massive
Coral species:  Porites cylindrica

2 year update: With an 87% survival rate, I'm pleased to report that this line survived through the El Nino induced bleaching event in mid 2016. The corals did not bleach, mimicking their reef counterparts, where the wild P. cylindrica has survived well too. We will be transplanting the coral in March 2017 and will update a picture of it on the reef. After this, we will no longer be reporting on this line. If you would like more information, please email us at deborah.burn@gili-lankanfushi.com
