Neon Polyp True Montipora Undata

Neon Polyp True Montipora Undata

Frag is a WYSIWYG Neon Polyp True Montipora Undata. Super cool looking SPS that encrusts. A personal favorite and quick grower.

Montipora are one of the most diverse SPS corals. They come in a wide variety of shapes and colors. As for care, they can be sensitive to changes in tank parameters. They are demanding of both high flow and high light for peak health and coloration.

Montipora Undata Coral adds outstanding visual interest to the reef aquarium with its vibrant coloration. Montipora Coral features a unique growth pattern demonstrating horizontal encrusting plate formation. Under intense lighting, the new growth on this coral can turn a vibrant purple.

Lighting

The Undata Coral is peaceful and can be placed in close proximity to other similar peaceful corals in the reef aquarium. It is moderately difficult to maintain and should be housed in a mature reef aquarium. 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.

Feeding

The Montipora Undata satisfies the majority of its nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. The Montipora Undata also benefits from additional food fed weekly in the form of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding corals and invertebrates.

Care should be taken as to its position, as this species is basically defenseless against other corals, even those that are not overly aggressive.
