Check out

Suharsonoi

Granulosa

Loripes

However I don't think they are really from deepwater especially if they are cultured for sale.

Hey Bro, have you visited Aquarist Chomber?

Not sure those are deep water sps bro, but I heard alot about snowypora species. Maybe its the new hobby name for deepwater sps.

Anyway, according to coral exporters and collectors, deepwater sps are found in depths of 20m max. Any deeper and i dont think they can recieve much sunlight. Please correct me if im wrong. Still learning here. :)

They can actually go as deep as 40m maybe 45m max .. Anything deeper than that is a myth

To my understanding , those so called deepwater Sps are those with smooth body and very few polyp. Like the lokani and suharsonoi , they don't necessarily come with white body ,

Camef from a deeper part of the reef 30m maybe and they can survive with lower light , I have a suharsonoi 'cultured one' placed at the bottom corner of my tank and it's doing good , was in quite a bad shape when i got it but it recovered well now and with good polyp extension.

Note, I had zoas on this corner and they don't do well due to lack of light.

Managed to get a pic of the elusive deepwater snowypora species.

Whether its some rare deepwater sps I'm not sure, but paying so much for a white sps, it should be extremely rare indeed. Just pray that it doesn't turn into tonga rock. :)

I'm newbie though , but this piece looks like going to up lorry leh.... Can share who bought it and from where?

I'm also not a sps expert and I'm new to deepwater sps so I can't be sure if its the "deep sea pale white sps". I only know they call it snowypora.

Going to up lorry or not I can't be certain but I'm sure it won't be on sale at such a high price if its going to up lorry right? That would be unethical.

There's a trend of ulns with high light and a certain product that will purposely eject the symbiotic zooanthellea leaving the Sps looking pale and bleached , or more pleasing word 'pastel' coloured. Which then after the colour element are used to tweak the colours of the Sps.

Maybe these are the so called snowypora , bleached Sps are not dead Sps if provided with the correct tender loving care

Thanks xiggie for the explanation. But somehow I read that these snowypora are not being sold as bleached or pastel coloured sps but labelled as deepwater sps hence the white pale colour. I'm new to this species especially deepwater sps so hope some sps expert can shed some light on this topic here.

The pic that firestarter has shown looks like an acropora microclados which is a shallow water, high light and strong water movement loving coral. Whoever claims that it is a deep sea species whatever that means is being deluded.

Honkit, thanks for shedding some light on this. So if the pic that I posted is not a deepwater sps but instead a shallow, high light loving coral, then it should not be in such a white and pale colour? Then why is it being sold for such a high price and termed as a deepwater sps? :ooh::shock:
