Purple Montipora digitata is hands down, one of the most beautiful and colorful small polyp stony corals available for reef aquariums, bar none. A branching digitata that develops vivid white growth tips. Happily it's also fast growing and extremely hardy as well as tolerant of a wide range of lighting conditions.
This coral requires moderate to high water flow
This coral requires moderate to bright lighting (PAR 300-450) to maintain its bright colors. T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow sps when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.
.Place this one on an exposed rock or ledge in the aquarium where it will receive direct flow and light. Montipora Digitata will encrust the rock and grow beautiful branched colonies.
Diet and Feeding
This coral is photosynthetic. Meaning a good portion of its nutrition comes from the algae zooxanthellae, through the light they receive. We recommend for feeding to use Oyster-Feast and/or Roti-Feast. Target feeding gets the corals fed using less food while keeping your nitrates and phosphates lower.
