The ORA® Aquacultured Melonberry Montipora’s lemony yellow base is decorated with stunning blue polyps. Growing outward in thick horizontal plates the Melonberry Montipora is sure to create contrast and color variation within your aquarium.
Aquacultured Montipora is one of the easier to maintain SPS corals and grows rapidly in the established reef aquarium. The ORA® Aquacultured Melonberry Montipora will thrive under lower kelvin lighting. Actinic lighting will electrify its polyps. Keep a medium water movement within the aquarium for best results. For continued good health, the ORA® Aquacultured Melonberry Montipora will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
The ORA® Aquacultured Melonberry Montipora will satisfy the majority of its nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. Alter its position in the aquarium depending on lighting.
It will also benefit from additional food fed weekly in the form of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.
The ORA® Aquacultured Melonberry Montipora coral is attached to an aragonite block and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.
