Overview

The Elkhorn Montipora Coral is a small polyp stony (SPS) coral that grows well under a variety of lighting conditions. Montipora Corals come in a vast variety of forms and colors, but this variety is a nice deep vivid green, with several branches. This species of coral is not seen often in the trade, making it highly desirable by SPS reefkeepers. Because of the extremely fast growth, the tips of the branches are often white, similar to other fast growing SPS corals.

This Aquacultured Elkhorn Montipora 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 Elkhorn, Green 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.
