overview
The Montipora digitata, Purple coral is a very fast growing species that is aquacultured within the USA. It is a branching species that develops many branches whose form will vary with its environmental conditions. When the polyps are extended, the coral has a very fuzzy appearance.

This Montipora digitata, Purple Coral is peaceful and can be placed in close proximity to other similar peaceful corals in the reef aquarium. Aquacultured Montipora is one of the easier to maintain SPS corals and grows rapidly in the established reef aquarium. It will require medium lighting combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

They will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, VHO, T-5’s up to the more intense metal halides. Alter their position in the aquarium depending on the lighting, and provide at least 3 watts per gallon using one of the lighting systems mentioned above.

It will also benefit from additional food fed weekly in the form of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.

The Montipora digitata, Purple Coral frags are mounted on a composite plug that can be affixed to live rock anywhere in the aquarium with gel super glue or epoxy.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/2" to 2-1/2"
