Coral Line by: Trevor & Shirley Bush

Coral Type: Bushy

Coral species: Acropora sp.

We take full colony shots of all the corals before fragmenting to allow for possible positive species identification at a later date, and we encourage any coral enthusiasts or biologists to contact us if they think they might be able to help with this!
As the coral fragments grow, it'll help us to gain a positive ID.

Coral Type: Branching

Coral species: Acropora pulchra

2017 Update: You can see from the 1.5 year photo update that this line did not fare well during the 2016 El Nino event. This species has been locally extinct on our reef following the event however, in the nursery, some areas of the colonies we grew are still alive. Rather than transplanting this line, we will re-fragment the living sections from it to try and grow new colonies.
