Coral Line by: Chris and Amanda Wade

Coral Type: Submassive


Coral species: Pocilopora eydouxi

2 yr update: We are sorry to report that this was one of the lines which died in the 2016 bleaching event. In April, we had a temperature increase in the water of 3 degrees C caused by climate change induced El Nino. To learn more about the event, head to our coral bleaching page. Sadly, we cant find this species on our reef anymore either, which suggests the species is poorly adapted to coping with warmer waters. If you have any questions about the project or line, or if you would like us to plant you some more coral, please email me on deborah.burn@gili-lankanfushi.com
