ORA Confusa Montipora
Low-profile plating corals are perfectly suited for spots in the reef tank that are under tall branching corals or very high up near the water surface. The Confusa Montipora is a horizontally plating SPS coral from ORA that is exceptionally attractive. It is fairly slow-growing. Its has the most color under intense lighting (however, do gradually acclimate each specimen to different light conditions). This select monti has a very rough surface texture with numerous little peaks and valleys. It has a neon green color over the surface with tiny rusty brown polyps. The edge of the plate (especially over areas of new growth) are purple in color. While the ORA Confusa Montipora reportedly grows upright columnar branches, the exact cause of this pattern remains unknown to date. This is a signature ORA coral that has been in production there for many years and is said to be an employee favorite.

The Benefits of Farmed Confusa Montipora
Because it is cultured in captivity, captive-bred livestock offers clear advantages over wild specimens. It is better adapted to living in an aquarium, tends to be more disease resistant and harbors fewer pests. It is also better able to handle shipping/acclimation stress! By purchasing captive-bred Confusa montis, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
