      Originally from @yardartist this a smooth surfaced, dark purple "Purple Haze" Montipora Capricornus. It encrusts and plates in a gentle downward slope. I have grown it under T5, LED and MH and it is about the same under all of these. It even grew under refugium lighting in my sump. The colour is more pinkish if pH is low.

      I have a large colony and can break off frags almost whenever they are needed.

      This is the monti cap or other? Different from Idaho grape right?

      Do you have pictures? I have red Montipora Cap and would like to join if the color is different.

      Here is my frag.


      Excuse all the green stuff. Apparently my 2 tangs, all my snails n hermits are allergic to algae.

      Thanks for sharing the pic. Looks like a little pink to me. I will take a picture of mine to see if they are different colors.

      My montipora, which looks like red brown. It is attached to a magnetic base of a retired pump.

      It is quite dark purple with slight brown undertone. It does tend towards pink on the areas of newer growth.
