Montipora Coral

Montipora coral is considered one of the easiest of the small polyp stony (SPS) corals to keep and is recommended coral for beginner hobbyists because of their ease of care and growth rate. They display many different types of growth patterns and color morphs.

Also, they come in a huge variety of growth forms such as plating, encrusting, and branching as well as just about every color imaginable. All species of Montipora coral love higher flow levels, so be sure to provide them with plenty of water circulation and they should usually be placed midway in your reef as they like a medium amount of light. The only exception to this light preference is for plated or encrusting Montipora, which should be positioned near the bottom of your reef as they can easily be burned.

They prefer fine particulate food like Zooplankton, but do not require to be target fed as they will pick up the food as it floats around your reef. Montiporas are not aggressive at all and should not be kept near aggressive corals. Be sure to give them plenty of room so they do not grow into a more aggressive species or shade a nearby coral.

All orders are selected by an aquatic technician with an expertise in SPS corals. Fully guaranteed, acropora corals are chosen by health and coloration, preventively dipped, double bagged for protection, placed in extra thick thermal insulated coolers, and covered in a double wall box for shipping.
