101

Coral Line by: The Yamagishi Family

Coral Type: Branching

Coral species: Acropora sp.

Message: For Ryutaro

Notes: Unfortunately due to this year's El nino event many of our coral lines have been affected by coral bleaching and many coral fragments have died as a result. You will notice that '% of Fragments Alive' dropped significantly at the 6 month mark and that mortality was as a direct result of the warm water in April/May this year. At 12 months, we see a steady survival rate and some growth - a good sign! It is now time to transplant this line to the reef!
