Overview

The ORA® Aquacultured Setosa Montipora Coral is a small polyp stony (SPS) coral often referred to as Velvet Branch, or Velvet Finger Coral. Montipora Corals come in a vast variety of forms and colors, but this variety is orange but can appear pink when illuminated under very intense lighting. This Aquacultured Setosa Montipora Coral is a relatively slow growing variety that forms an undulated encrusted base as it grows.

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. Montipora Corals satisfy the majority of their nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. While it may not require additional food to maintain its health in the reef aquarium, the Setosa Coral will feed on micro-plankton or foods designed for filter-feeding invertebrates.

The ORA Aquacultured Orange Setosa coral is attached to a plastic plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.
