  1. General Reef Discussion
    Hi all, looking for input. I have a Montipora that has started going from green to tan. It seemed happy for over 6 months and all of a sudden it has started turning. Nothing has changed as far as light. Flow is a bit different since I lost 1 powerhead. It was without it for several weeks...

    It looks like a tiny spider and was crawling on one of my newly acquired monitpora frags. There seems to be no harm done to the monti...no spots, recession, lack of polyp extension, etc. It is about 2-3 mm in diameter.

    Hello, This morning I found this nice yellow M.capricornis that was going for a low price. Needless to say, I succumbed to temptation. The Montipora opened up almost immediately after I placed it in the tank and I'm surprised at the polyp extension on it. I checked it for pests (Didn't turn up...

    My clownfish frequently knock sand on top of my green monti. I keep up with them usually and knock the sand off within 24 hrs. I waited 2 days before I knocked it off this time because it was less sand than usual. After knocking off the sand I saw a 'dead spot' that was roughly the diameter of...

    I have seen some pictures of different types of Montipora growing together, and am wondering if only specific types will grow in harmony or all will. Attached is a bunch of pictures from Google! My tentative Idea is to get a bunch of small ($9.99) frags of common types of montipora (Red...

    Any idea to why my Montipora is brown in the center? It was like that a month ago when I bought it (Cheap!), but I thought it would be better by now. What is browning caused by? I don't believe I have any pests, so could it be excessive/inadequate lighting? It is extended, but I am still...

    Well I'm pretty happy to see my red plating monti recovering from bleaching. I lost about 80% of it when I put it in a "ghetto" QT after discovering it had monti eating nudi's. I iodine treated it and a few days later (probably because of the crappy QT) bleached. I assume the flow wasn't...

    Here is my beautiful orange Monti. A friend gave me this frag (it was about 1cm) and said it was slow growing. However, after about 4 months it has gotten at least 5x bigger. Anyone else got some super amazing colors out a SPS coral? Feel free to share -William
