Overview

The LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Purple Superman Montipora Coral is a striking, bicolor encrusting Montipora coral sure to make a pleasant addition for avid coral collectors. While the popular Superman Montipora typically sports a blue base coloration with contrasting red polyps, the LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Purple Superman Montipora Coral features a beautiful lavender purple base coloration with carnation red polyps.

The LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Purple Superman Montipora Coral requires moderate to high aquarium lighting conditions achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs or the more intense metal halides. To maximize growth rate, maintain high pH, alkalinity and calcium levels, as well as high water quality with phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. Along with proper lighting and water quality, the LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Purple Superman Montipora Coral will benefit from moderate to strong water movement.

A peaceful reef inhabitant, the LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Purple Superman Montipora Coral will not bother other neighboring corals. However, be sure to provide ample space away from other corals as it can grow quickly under ideal conditions. For its continued good health, it requires the addition of calcium, magnesium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.

The LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Purple Superman Montipora Coral satisfies most of its nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. However, it will benefit from supplemental feedings in the form of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.

The LiveAquaria® Certified Captive Grown Purple Superman Montipora Coral is mounted on a fired ceramic plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.
