First obtained from Jeremy Russell of Coral Reef Aquarium many years ago, Jeremy’s Montipora is branching similar to a Montipora digitata, but has larger corallites and polyps. This stunning coral has neon green polyps and prominent white growth tips, however under high intensity lights, its polyps may look greenish-yellow with a whitish tan base. Jeremy’s Montipora is slow growing but hardy and will adapt to a wide range of lighting and flow conditions.
Jeremy’s Montipora is peaceful and can be placed in close proximity to other similar peaceful corals in the reef aquarium. Aquacultured Montipora is one of the easier to maintain SPS corals and grows rapidly in the established reef aquarium. It will require high lighting combined with medium water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, it will also require the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
Montiporas will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, T-5s, powerful LEDs up to the more intense metal halides. Alter their position in the aquarium depending on the lighting mentioned above.
The ORA Aquacultured Jeremy’s Montipora Coral is attached to an aragonite block and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.
