    THE GREAT CORAL GIVEAWAY — 2012

    Coral #4: Pink Polyp Encrusting Montipora

    Description: "For all you SPS lovers out there, check out this beautiful Pink Polyp Encrusting Montipora! It's hard to tell from the photo because of the blue halides, but the base color is actually a faint baby blue!!!"

    HOW TO ENTER: Simply like this photo or leave a comment before 12 pm PST on Friday, 7/27.

    HOW TO WIN: Winner will be chosen at random. Winner will receive the Pink Polyp Encrusting Montipora plus a bottle of Aqua Vision Aquatics Coral Dip Solution (http://ow.ly/c43GP).

    Scientific Name: montipora sp.
    Care Level: Medium
    Temperament: Peaceful
    Lighting: High intensity
    Waterflow: Moderate
    Placement: Middle to top
    Water Parameters: Temperature: 72-78° F; pH 8.1-8.3; Specific Gravity 1.023-1.025; dKH 8-12; Calcium 400-450ppm; Nitrate > 5ppm

    Family: Acroporidae

    Montipora sp. corals are one of the hardier SPS corals. They are typically more tolerant of varying lighting and flow conditions than other SPS corals, such as acropora sp. The encrusting montipora can be found in a variety of colors. The more common specimens are typically solid brown, green or orange. The more exotic multi-color specimens may have wild combinations of blue, pink, orange or purple. With the right water and lighting conditions, the encrusting motipora can grow quite rapidly. Regular feedings with coral foods and trace elements may boost color and growth. It is a popular coral among reef aquarium hobbyists because it can be propagated fairly easily to create new frags to sell or trade.
