Description: The ORA Aquacultured Supernatural Capricornis Coral is described by Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums (ORA®) as one of their most exceptional Capricornis varieties. If you are a Montipora capricornis or “cap” lover then you will want to check out ORA’s Supernatural Cap. This Supernatural Montipora amazes all with a constellation of neon green "stars" polyps that rise above its golden khaki colored skin. The Supernatural cap grows much thicker than our other plating Montipora varieties. The coral will mature into its signature beautiful Vase shape, it will get the attention of any reef aquarium hobbyist or collector.

Difficulty Moderate

Aggressiveness Peaceful

Water-flow This coral requires moderate to high water flow

Lighting This coral requires moderate lighting (PAR 200-300) (at least 3 watts per gallon), to maintain its color. T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow sps when the proper levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.

Placement .Place this one on an exposed area of rock or ledge in the aquarium where it will receive direct flow and light.

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 additional feeding weekly for faster growth. Feed a micro-plankton reef aquarium food designed for filter feeding invertebrates. Target feeding gets the corals fed using less food while keeping your nitrates and phosphates lower. For continued good health, don't forget the addition of elements that are the building blocks of coral. Addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements should be added to the water as needed.
