The Supernatural cap grows much thicker than ORA's other plating Montipora varieties. Capricornis corals grow in a circular, leaf-like shape, and are sometimes referred to as a vase coral. They are very beautiful and fragile corals, and care needs to be taken on its placement in order to protect it from damage.
This Aquacultured Montipora capricornis Coral is peaceful and can be placed in close proximity to other similar peaceful corals in the reef aquarium. Aquacultured Montiporas are one of the easier to maintain SPS corals and grow rapidly in the established reef aquarium.

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.
