resized setosa
This Montipora setosa has developed yellow inexperienced pigments believed to have been grafted from a neighboring coral. The branches of an Acropora valida had been allowed to return into contact with this Montipora setosa making a portion of in a different way coloured development.  The expansion continued to manifest into a part of the colony and seed fragments from the coloured parts have yielded a newly coloured coral.  It’s theorized that pigment shifts equivalent to these are a results of protein infections in addition to pigment grafting however given the circumstances surrounding this colony, I consider it’s really grafted from the Acropora allowed to the touch it.
