The Slowburn Montipora is one of the more sort after montipora variations.
Like most palawenesis, their growth is reasonably slow in comparison to other montipora species.
It is an SPS coral (small polyp stony) that encrusts onto the rock work and has a contrast of a reddish background with dark blue polyps.
Please be advised that this coral can take a while to colour up after shipping
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.
