overview
The Smooth Encrusting Montipora Coral is a small polyp stony (SPS) coral often referred to as Cabbage, Lettuce, Velvet, or Velvet Rock Coral. It is a relatively fast growing coral, and under the right conditions will spread across the rockwork in the aquarium. The polyps of these corals are very small, giving it a velvety appearance. Establish a colony of all three color forms - orange, green, and purple - around your reef for the most brilliant showcase display.

The Encrusting Montipora Coral is peaceful and can be placed in close proximity to other similar peaceful corals in the reef aquarium. It is relatively easy to maintain, but should be housed in a mature 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.

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

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 2" to 3"; Medium: 3" to 5"; Large: 5" to 8"
