Aquacultured Red Monti Setosa Coral - .75 Inches 3-9-d
This Red Setosa is an awesome Montipora species with a rather unique growth form among SPS corals. This coral is famous for its intense coloration and it can appear orange, pink or red when placed under very intense lighting. This is over .5 inches mounted on a frag plug.
As the orange Setosa colony grows, it forms an undulating encrusted base and branches that eventually fuse together before branching again. Mature colonies often have extremely unusual shapes and it seems that no two colonies are ever the same. Compared to other Montipora species, the orange Setosa has very few polyps however they give the otherwise smooth surface a delicate texture. The orange Setosa is a relatively slow grower, but they have found it to be hardy and tolerant of a wide range of lighting and flow conditions.
