Description

The Sunset Montipora Coral is a spectacular variety that captivates with its vibrant colors and unique growth patterns. Each frag is carefully cut to order, ensuring that your coral arrives in peak condition. To accommodate the healing process, we advise a shipping date at least one week after purchase, with a potential wait time of up to 2 weeks for pre-healing preparation. The frag sizes range from 1/2 - 3/4 inch, perfect for any reef aquarium.

To thrive, the Sunset Montipora requires direct lighting and ample water flow. We recommend mounting your coral on a rock or ledge using IC gel glue, putty, or a combination of both. For optimal health and coloration, this coral should be placed in moderate lighting (PAR 150) and moderate to high water flow conditions.

Feeding: Top Shelf Aquatics suggests a diet rich in Zooplanktons, Phytoplanktons, Amino Acids, and other Organic Proteins for hard corals. A daily broadcast feeding regimen, paused return and circulation pumps ensure maximum nutrient uptake.

Lighting & Flow: Adequate water flow and moderate lighting are crucial for maintaining the health and vibrancy of the Sunset Montipora. While T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's are all suitable, achieving the correct PAR levels is essential. A 14-20K color spectrum is recommended for the best coloration.

This coral thrives in water conditions typical of the Indo-Pacific but is aqua-cultured right here in Florida by Top Shelf Aquatics, ensuring top-notch quality and sustainability. Ideal water parameters include a temperature range of 75-80° F; specific gravity of 1.025-1.026; pH of 8.1-8.4; Calcium of 420-440 ppm; Alkalinity of 8-9.5 dKH; Magnesium of 1300-1450; Nitrates <10ppm; Phosphates < .10ppm.
