Be one of the first to bring home the ORA® aquacultured Pink Polyp Capricornis Coral. This Montipora capricornis has an olive green base color and dark pink polyps. The contrasting polyp and tissue colors make this two-toned cap really stand out. This is a fast growing capricornis with a slightly bumpy texture and delicate skeletal structure. As the colony matures, its plating growth formation stays relatively flat allowing for continued polyp viewing from the front glass of your tank. ORA suggests that the green tissue color looks best when the coral is not lit too brightly.
Aquacultured Montipora is one of the easier to maintain SPS corals and grows rapidly in the established reef aquarium. It will require 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, T-5s, powerful LEDs and up to the more intense metal halides. The ORA aquacultured Corals satisfy the majority of their nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body.
It will also benefit from additional food fed weekly in the form of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.
The ORA Aquacultured Pink Polyp Carpricornis coral is attached to an argonite plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.
