Details

Montipora capricornis generally grows in flat or curved plate-like formations. Colonies can be a solid color or can have polyps that are a different color from the base colony. It has a fast growth rate and pieces 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.

ORA Frags are propagated by Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums, the largest marine ornamental fish hatchery in the world. They continuously develop new frags and many are available in very limited quantities. We are proud to offer ORA's corals as part of our coral frag collection.
