The Blue Ice Acropora is a type of hard stony coral of the Acropora family. The Blue Ice trade name was given to this coral by Reeves' Reef as it was an otherwise unnamed coral. It is one of many Acropora corals known by many other trade names. There are many variations of this coral type that vary in color pattern, color intensity, and are known by different trade names. This is a medium growing coral that grows in an encrusting and branching shape. The parent of Blue Ice in the Bridge Tender reef arrived at Reeves' Reef in July 2014 and was made to grow on the shell that you see now. The parent was an unknown age and unknown generation of captive coral. Reeves' Reef is cultivating more generations of fragments of this coral.
