068

Coral Line by: Maia Clements

Coral Type: Digitate


Coral species: Acropora tenuis

2017 update: The fragments came from the same donor colony as those for line 067. This line was more affected than 067 during the bleaching event of 2016 which resulted in some mortality. You can see from the photographs below as the corals start to lose their colour. Luckily, many of the colonies on this line recovered entirely from the bleaching, and have been growing beautifully. We are looking forward to transplanting this line to the reef soon. We are planning to transplant in March 2017
