Scientific Name:  Montipora

Common Names: Vase coral, Cap coral, or Plating Montipora

Care Level: Moderate - Difficult

Origin / Habitat: Indo-Pacific

Temperament / Behavior: As with most SPS coral, for continued good health, this coral will require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. They are sensitive to changes and grow best with high lighting and flow

Food: This coral does not need to be regularly fed to thrive in your marine aquarium system, however, we have noticed that spot feeding can be extremely beneficial to many coral species. 

Light: High lighting is recommended for this coral. Though it can adapt very well to the different lighting available, we recommend intense metal halides for brighter coloration. 

Water Movement: These corals prefer high high flow as with many other sps. If the flow is too slow the coral will be more susceptible to infections, and will not grow as fast a expected.
