Matt V Jelly Bean has been with us for a while now.  It Grows quickly and is easy to keep colored.  We have done well with this acro in every tank we place a frag in.   Jelly Bean shines bright under white light and looks great from the side and top down.  Matt V Jelly Bean is a great choice for anybody trying to grow a higher end acropora for their first time.  

Placement: Mount Matt V Jelly Bean Acropora Coral using IC gel glue, or putty, on an exposed rock or ledge in the aquarium where it will receive direct flow and light. This coral grows outward like a table. Give it space to "encrust" and it will grow into a beautiful showpiece.
