For The Love of Coral: Our Favorite Corals
Beautiful Corals of the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
Off in the shallow reefs of the west Pacific ocean, this fast growing coral makes its stand.
Acropora florida is part of a group of coral called Staghorns, characterized by thick branches that have shorter stubbier branches peaking out over the edges. While it is a very fast growing coral, it's speed in growth also makes it weaker on the whole against storms and other natural terrors. (however not so with our artificial coral replica)
Here at Custom Coral Creations, it's by far one of our customer's favorite pieces. It looks like everything the general public considers to be coral. Even those who are unfamiliar with the beautiful creatures known as coral can see this and get the general idea.
It has been included in a number of our inserts including the one photographed below as a part of a larger structure we will feature later.
You will see this coral and it's very close brothers very regularly in the wide blue world of corals. There are a number of online resources available for those who want to learn more.
