LiveAquaria® is proud to introduce the aquacultured Certified Captive Grown Rainbow Montipora Coral as part of our ever-increasing offering of captive-bred and aquacultured aquatic life. As its colorful common name implies, this eye-catching aquacultured variety of Montipora coral flaunts gorgeous coloration showcasing rich shades of purple, red, and green coloration. Propagated here at our Coral Farm & Aquatic Life Facility in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, our aquacultured Certified Captive Grown Rainbow Montipora Coral offers reef aquarium hobbyists a fantastic aquacultured coral that will inject incredible visual interest to any reef aquarium landscape thanks to its encrusting growth habit and rainbow coloration.
The aquacultured Certified Captive Grown Rainbow Montipora Coral requires moderate aquarium lighting conditions achieved by T-5s, powerful LEDs or the more intense metal halides. To maximize growth rate, be sure to maintain high pH, alkalinity and calcium levels, as well as high water quality with phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. Along with proper lighting and water quality, the aquacultured Certified Captive Grown Rainbow Montipora Coral will benefit from moderate to strong water movement achieved by the addition of powerheads, circulation pumps, or any other supplemental water movement device.
A peaceful reef inhabitant, the aquacultured Certified Captive Grown Rainbow Montipora Coral will not bother other neighboring corals. However, be sure to provide ample space away from other corals as it can grow quickly under ideal conditions. For its continued good health, the aquacultured Certified Captive Grown Rainbow Montipora Coral requires the addition of calcium, magnesium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water.
The aquacultured Certified Captive Grown Rainbow Montipora Coral satisfies the majority of its nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body. However, it will benefit from supplemental feedings in the form of micro-plankton or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates.
The aquacultured Certified Captive Grown Rainbow Montipora Coral is mounted on a fired ceramic plug that can be placed easily and securely in or between the rockwork in the reef aquarium.
