After having recently becoming obsessed with montiporas (I think i'm up to 8 now) I thought I would see what some of you think is the best, craziest, most prized montiopora out there. I've seen similar threads for acros, millies, mushrooms etc but couldn't find anything on montis. Lets see what you got!

There are a few threads on here if you look them up.

I have grown out a bunch of them and not kept any recently except for one I have not seen anywhere. Its a grey digi with purple tips, and the tips also have white polyps on them. Its stayed a frag for a long time becsuse of fish breaking the new branches off :angryfire:
Anyone seen a digi like this?

I have three types of Montipora sp. in my tank: Montipora digitata, Montipora monaseriata and Montipora setosa. M. setosa is my most prized:

The white polyps only show on the new growth areas so far. Every branch it has grown has been broke off by fish. But,now I have it in a tank thst has only small fish and it's just finally gotten used to the leds I am experimenting with. The white polyps also are only half white, Or maybe even just a quarter of it is white. Really wierd, anyone seen this kind before? I will get a better pic once it grows out. The phone makes everything look purplish...

Reverse sunset monti, It was a rescue coral from an ammonia spike, so waiting for it to color back up, its actually grown quite a bit.

My favorite of mine is the forest fire. I have quite a few montis of different types but my FF is my favorite.

Crappy phone pics
Disturbed it to show body color =).. Grown from a 1/4" nub


Random monti pic (FF, confusa, mystic, bloody Mary frag, purple haze, and a German blue polyp hiding in the back)


Reef tech Starburst and German blue


Didn't really realize how many I had till I just counted.. 12 in total..but not all will make it when space counts as I'm partial to acro's lol.

the gf really wanted some setosa cause it was pink in the store but all the full grown colonies were orange, yours is making me want to grab a frag now.




My favorite of mine is the forest fire. I have quite a few montis of different types but my FF is my favorite.

Any tips for holding on to that green color?
