ORA Mind Trick Montipora
This strain may look very similar to one you’ve seen with a very similar name (it’s just missing the first word of that name, to be specific); that is because it actually is the very same strain (ORA has respectfully chosen to shorten the name to avoid infringing upon intellectual property). ORA has maintained this line since obtaining a single specimen from a local hobbyist in 2009. So yes, this is the very same famous monti that is still considered to be among the most beautiful Montipora varieties available. It features a sea green base color with a purple growth edge and rusty red polyps. The ORA Mind Trick Montipora generally grows in an thick encrusting form but starts to plate out horizontally after reaching the edge of the rock. Its growth is slightly slower than your average thin-plating Montipora.
The ORA Mind Trick Montipora thrives at middle-top tank height under medium-high lighting with moderate-strong water flow.
These frags are approximately 1.5 inches wide and are firmly attached to a cement aragonite disk. See below for more information.

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