Title Montipora capricornis

Tanner Crawford

Last Updated



A textured addition to watch grow in your reef!

Montipora capricornis 

A wide range of colors make this coral an attractive SPS for your reef tank

This coral is a plating variety of coral that you can use to create a distinct overhang in your aquarium. The montipora capricornis is a small polyp stony coral. It isn’t generally a very peaceful coral that prefers medium flow and medium lighting. For best color the addition of supplements and actinic and white light are necessary. Montipora growth can be a great indicator of a more mature reef tank. With good growth comes the potential for shading of lower hanging pieces and requires trimming for optimal growth and color.
