How to Care for Vivid's Grape Ape Acropora Coral

written by Dave Burr

Vivid's Grape Ape Acropora is a super awesome coral!! The contrast of the purple stems and yellow corallites is hard to beat.  This coral likes high light and good variable flow.  It has relatively hardy and has been easy for us to color and grow in multiple display tanks in our store.  This is also a coral that looks great under white light not only blues.  The growth and structure is super unique and is a must have for anyone looking for something different but super hot!!

Placement: Mount Vivid's Grape Ape 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.
