        Are you sure about the strong lighting necessity?
        Echinata is an acropora from deeper part of the reef, i would say "moderate" light...

        Am i wrong?

          pygoplites, I'm with you. I've always been told these guys can be kept in a less lighting intense tank.

                        oh wow frag color looks quite different than the colony.

                        about the post #2 above, it looks more like a purple pillow, no?

                          Don't think I saw one true Acropora echinata in the bunch, lots of nice corals but no echinata's
                          IMO
