The Spiralling Montipora is one of my personal favourite pieces
Although rarer and more expensive than other montipora capricornis, their care requirements are pretty much exactly the same and in the right conditions, they can exhibit some of the fastest SPS growth.
It is an SPS coral (small polyp stony) which grows as a plate and has a green base with piercing blue polyps.
This coral came from a tank breakdown back in 2016 and for those of you that watch my youtube channel, this was exactly the same tank my powder blue tang came from.
This coral needs good lighting, and high flow is very important to maintain optimum health, as the flow will keep detritus from settling on them.
In addition to this, it will also require the correct levels of Calcium, Alkalinity and Magnesium along with various other trace elements found in natural seawater.
Additional feeding isn't required to maintain its health, as they get the majority of their food from photosynthesis.
They will feed on micro-plankton and very fine coral foods.
Be sure to keep an eye on your nutrient levels though, as excessive nutrients can cause it to lose colouration.
