Photo of the Week - Acropora nasuta

Acropora nasuta usually forms corymbose (bushy flat-ish topped) colonies. Axial corallites are tubular and radial corallites are usually in neat rows and have a distinct nariform shape. The tips of the radial corallites have a unique pocket shape. It comes in a variety of of colors but is most commonly cream, brown, green, or blue green with contrasting (blue or pink) colored tips. This one is a beautiful turquoise with a very fine pink shading on the tips. Awesome. Shot under 20k Ushio lights.
