Coral Line by: Louis, Nikolas, Viggo Beecham

Coral Type: Bushy


Coral species: Acropora plantaginea

2 year update: We can see from the picture, that a few of the colonies in the foreground died- this was caused by the El Nino induced bleaching event in 2016. To learn more about the bleaching head to our bleaching page. Having lost over 80% of coral on our house reef, to lose just a few colonies on this line was great. The majority of the line survived well and will be incredibly important for recovering our damaged reef. The lines were left in the nursery during the warming period so as not to induce any extra stress. Transplant date is set for March 2017. Your graph will be updated shortly.
