ORA Peach Digitata
SPS coral enthusiasts appreciate Montipora digitata generally because of its beautifully branching antler-like or finger-like growth pattern. But it’s the colorful digis in particular that (unsurprisingly) claim the highest demand. Thanks to the efforts of coral farmers at ORA, brightly pigmented and highly prized strains such as the Peach Digitata and Orange Digitata have become reasonably easy to obtain and affordable for the average home aquarist. The ORA Peach Digitata differs from the Orange Digitata in that it has a more “peachy” yellow-pink-orange base and polyp coloration and very pale growth tips. Moreover, the branches of Peach digi are thicker and grow more vertically than those of the Orange digi.
These captive-propagated specimens are quite adaptable; the ORA Peach Digitata thrives at any tank height under medium-high lighting in moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Peach Digitata
Grown under captive conditions, captive-bred livestock offers distinct 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 Peach digis, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable!
