Overview

The Green Apple Cap is a small polyp stony (SPS) coral often referred to as Vase Coral. Montipora Corals come in a vast variety of forms and colors, but this variety is a nice vivid green. The Montipora Capricornis coral's usual growth form is either plating or vase-like. This is highly dependent on the water flow and lighting in the aquarium.

Montipora Corals can live 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. In an aquarium lit by metal halides, Montipora Corals should be kept in a mid to low position, and under other lighting they should be kept in a mid to high position. To bring out the most intense coloration of this coral, we recommend metal halide lighting. For continued good health, they will require the addition of a two part calcium and buffer supplement in order to maintain a calcium level of 400-450 ppm and dKH of 8-12. They will benefit from the addition of zooplankton.

LiveAquaria® Aquacultured Coral frags are mounted to a fired ceramic plug that can be affixed to live rock anywhere in the aquarium with gel super glue or epoxy.

Customer Testimonials

Phyllis M Bronx , NY
I purchased and I first had it to the bottom and it opened up a little after a few days. When I moved it up to middle of the tank for a medium flow it opened up even more.
