I have three photos of the same coral head. I really need a good estimate
as to the age of this particular Pocillopora eydouxi.
Details. It grew in about 25 feet on the Hawaiian island of
Maui. Temperature loggers show a temperature range of about 27 C in August
and about 24 during February through April for this area.
Here is a portion of the coral in 1988.
About how many years would this head have been growing to reach that size?
