Red Planet Growth Sequence

Red Planet

While looking through our photo archives we realized that we had a pretty cool series of photos that showed the growth progression of one of the biggest corals in our greenhouse.  We got our first piece of this iconic coral in May of 2006 and our first photos are dated in September of that year. In the beginning we were taking fragments off of the original piece but at some point we stopped and let it grow naturally.  Over the years there were plenty of accidents that lead to breakage and a few areas that died back due to a lack of light. Nonetheless it has grown into an impressive piece.
