ORA Purple Undata
There are lots of choices of SPS corals for placement over the top of the hardscape. Low-growing SPS corals for middle sections can be hard to find–even more so if you want a brightly colored variety. The ORA Purple Undata is a super nice encrusting/plating variety of Montipora that suits this purpose perfectly. This handsome monti forms a thick purple crust with deep ridges. It has an amazing purple hue overall, with little purple polyps, a purple base and a light purple edge. This strain is rather fast growing and can quickly cover ledges at the side of the reef structure that are exposed to stronger light and water flow. While it does tolerate a fairly wide range of lighting conditions, its coloration can take on a beautiful blue hue under very intense lighting.
The ORA Purple Undata is best placed at middle height in the tank with medium-strong lighting and moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Purple Undata
Because it is raised under aquarium conditions, captive-bred livestock offers significant advantages over wild-caught specimens. For example, it tends to be more disease resistant, harbors fewer pests and is better able to handle shipping/acclimation stress. By purchasing an captive-bred Purple Undata, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms, helping to make our hobby more sustainable!
