ORA German Blue Polyp Digitata
Corals of the genus Acropora definitely dominate among the branching SPS type corals, both on the reef and in most hobbyists’ tanks. This makes any/all of the non-acro branchers that much more interesting, unique and indeed desirable. And if they’re beautifully colored? Even better! A fine example is the ORA German Blue Polyp Digitata. This is a fast-growing, multibranching Montipora coral with round tips. It has short, bright blue polyps and golden yellow to white growth tips (it requires intense light to maintain its lovely sapphire blue polyp coloration). While it is a relatively “peaceful” coral and can live near other such corals, it should be afforded plenty of room to allow for its fast growth.
A reasonably adaptable strain, the ORA German Blue Polyp Digitata may be placed at any tank height with moderate-strong water flow so long as it receives very intense light.

The Benefits of Farmed German Blue Polyp Digitata
Grown under aquarium conditions, captive-bred livestock offers several significant advantages over wild specimens. It tends to be more disease resistant, harbors fewer pests and is better capable of handling shipping/acclimation stress. Therefore, it is specially adapted to living in an aquarium! By purchasing captive-bred German Blue Polyp montis, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
