Seasons Greetings Montipora Aquariums in Motion Seed Colony. The corals bright
green surface contrasts sharply with its bright red orange colored polyps that extend during the day.
The corals unique bumpy surface structure is also visible.
The Seasons Greetings Montipora sp. coral contains a dramatically contrasting pigmentation pattern.
The corals main surface is colored bright green, while the corallites polyps are bright red orange
(see image above). This gives the coral a red and green pigmentation pattern and explains why it was
named Seasons Greetings by Ron and Jason at Aquarium In Motion. Ron and Jason are the owners of the
Aquarium In Motion retail reef shops located in Southern California. The corals polyps extend during
the daytime photoperiod. The surface structure of this Montipora is also unique in that it contains
small round bumps (see closeup image below). Reeffarmers acquired our seed fragments from both Aquarium
In Motion and SniperSPS who also acquired an early fragment of this coral.
Steve Tyree is maintaining a seed section of this coral for Reeffarmers.com in an 80 gallon
naturally filtered BiZonal system. This system is naturally filtered with a semi-cryptic zone and
a reef flat exposed zone.
In Steve's captive reef the coral is positioned to receive moderate to weak light levels from a
400 watt 20,000 K Radium metal halide. The coral appears to develop its best combination of colors when
exposed to moderate to weak light levels. Price is currently $90 per small fragment. The bimonthly limited
edition reservation schedules can be found below.
Seasons Greetings Montipora Reeffarmers First Edition Fragment. In brighter
light the coral has developed a lighter green pigmentation. The red/orange polyp pigmentation
is easily maintained in captivity.
