ORA Supernatural Capricornis
ORA has built a pretty diverse inventory of Montipora capricornis over the years, many of which examples are quite impressive. Would you believe it if we told you that the one variety they describe as their “most exceptional” is a green-on-green strain? Well, check out the ORA Supernatural Capricornis! This cap grows much thicker than their other plating varieties, often forming big humps and ridges. And while its shape alone is worth lots of attention, what makes it so desirable is its unique coloration. This stunner features a light olive green base over which its sea foam green polyps truly pop. Though the pastel polyps very much stand out over the more earthy background, it is a pleasant and balanced, rather than stark, contrast. The lovely color combination of this cap never gets old, even in (perhaps especially in) a tank full of the flashiest, most gaudily pigmented corals.
The ORA Supernatural Capricornis can be placed anywhere in the tank so long it receives medium-strong lighting and moderate-strong water flow.

The Benefits of Farmed Supernatural Capricornis
Captive-bred livestock offers significant advantages over wild-caught specimens. Most importantly, it tends to be more disease resistant, harbors fewer pests and is better able to handle shipping/acclimation stress. By purchasing captive-bred Supernatural caps, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms, helping to make our hobby more sustainable!
