This rare Montipora foveolata species has a bright lime green base coloration. Its polyps are colored purple to blue and make a striking contrast to the corals base pigmentation. Its corallites also have an unusual very pronounced cup-like or funnel-like shape. The coral was exported by Tonga and originally acquired by Atlantis Aquarium in mid 2005. Mingwei of Atlantis believes the coral require moderate to strong light and moderate current. The coral grows similar to a M. confusa and develops thick plates. Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed farming section of the Montipora foveolata coral for in one of his 125 gallon naturally filtered Tri-Zonal Reef Aquarium. In Steve's captive reef the coral is positioned to receive moderate to strong light under a 400 watt 20,000 K Radium Metal Halide. Please note - We retired this coral in May 2009 due to the loss of the seed because of its sensitivity to bleaching.

Reeffarmers Seed Section. In our reefs the main body has retained its bright lime green coloration,
while the polyps have turned bright blue. In this image the polyps are not extended.
