A crimson red favites with icy blue colors spilling all over it. It's incredible how the icy blue color just completely covers the favites. Even the eyes are icy blue! We acquired this favites back in February of 2020 right when Indonesia started to import corals again. It was aggressively stung by a neighboring Euphyllia and receded a bit and lost a substantial amount of colors.
Fast forwards a few months of TLC, and it gained the colors seen in the colony photo! We began releasing our first frags of this Favites in July after seeing it do well under our husbandry. It's proven to have a similar care level to most Favites such as JF Dayglo and CC Darth Maul Favites.
Stock frags will have both the blue and red coloration. Examples of frags are shown throghout as an example of a piece you may receive.
LC Frostfire Favites
Best tried after you've had success with a few other easier corals first and have an understanding of basic reef chemistry such as keeping salinity, alkalinity, calicium, and magnesium levels consistent. The coral itself is very easy to care for if you test for your parameters often and have created a consistent maintanence routine for your reef!
