The ORA® Peach Digitata Coral is a small polyp stony (SPS) coral often referred to as Velvet Branch, or Velvet Finger Coral. Montipora Corals come in a vast variety of forms and colors, but this variety has a nice peach color on its growth tips with an orange base and polyp. The Peach Digitata has thicker branches and tends to grow up unlike the ORA Orange digitata that grows more outward with shorter and thinner branches.
They will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, T-5s, powerful LEDs and up to the more intense metal halides. Digatata Corals satisfy the majority of their nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. While it may not require additional food to maintain its health in the reef aquarium, the Peach Digitata will feed on micro-plankton or foods designed for filter-feeding invertebrates.
The ORA Aquacultured Peach Digitata coral is attached to a plastic plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.
