Coral Line by: Valentin and Nicole Schillo

Coral Type: Digitate


Coral species: Acropora vermiculata

2 year update: This line was one of the lines which fared well during the El Nino bleaching event in 2016. We are a little backlogged with data collection, but will update your graph shortly. This species, whilst affected badly on the reef, did very well in our nursery, where only a few colonies were lost. happily, we have several lines containing this species, leaving us with plenty of healthy coral to transplant to our damaged reef. Transplant date is set for March 2017.
