Overview

Hodag's Montipora Coral has bright green branches that have a flame-shaped pattern and its growth form is highly dependent on the water flow and lighting in the aquarium. The parent colony of these coral frags was a Bali Maricultured Coral that was grown in a shallow lagoon and then quarantined and given a health inspection before being propagated.

The Montipora Coral 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. It 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.
