Montipora danae generally grows encrusting on a surface. Its polyps are farther apart than other Montipora's and colonies can be a solid color or can have polyps that are a different - even contrasting - color from the base colony. It has a fast growth rate and can easily be attached to new bases for propagation.

Montipora corals are found in many types of reef environments. They can form branchy colonies in deeper waters or flat encrusting plates in shallow, high energy environments. Many colors can also be found in this huge family. As home propagation becomes more popular, exotic color combinations are making their way into the trade alongside solid purple, green, brown, yellow and red colonies.

Since Montipora is found in many different environments, its needs vary between colonies. Generally speaking, they tend to prefer high lighting and water movement, especially vividly colored colonies. They will tolerate lower lighting, but tend to become more brown or dark green in color.
