Aggressiveness Peaceful

Water-flow This coral requires moderate to high water flow

Lighting 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.

Placement .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 they be fed weekly any good micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding corals and invertebrates. Target feeding gets the corals fed using less food while keeping your nitrates and phosphates lower.
