Montipora capricornis

By: melev | Tags: | Comments: 0

I love Montipora capricornis, and in this image you can see the progressive growth along the leading edges. This SPS coral requires intense lighting (Metal Halide), 400-430ppm calcium and soak up magnesium so I aim for 1300-1400ppm. Keep it clean of detritus with good current or blast it clean with a turkey baster regularly. Most people simply call this species "Montis" for short.
