The ORA Mint Pavona (Pavona frondifera) is a thin and leafy species of Pavona.  Unlike its larger and more common relative Pavona cactus, the Mint Pavona exhibits a more delicate growth form and grows in a very compact colony. ORA obtained this particular strain of P. frondifera from Julian Sprung several years ago and it has proven to be a hardy and fast growing coral. Though this picture was taken under natural sunlight (~5500k), the stunning mint green coloration is best enjoyed under lights that favor the blue end of the spectrum.  You can read more about this coral here on Reefbuilders.
