Photo of the Week - Acropora Secale

Acropora secale is a very common coral that usually grows on upper reef slopes and outer reef flats in the wild. The branches are tapered, up to 25 mm thick. Axial corallites are small and tubular while radial corallites are of mixed sizes, sometimes alternating in vertical rows. The colonies are frequently quite colorful, usually mixtures of cream, blue, purple, brown and yellow. (Veron, 1986).
