ORA produces some pretty sweet aquacultured corals and I have had many in my tanks over the years, including the ORA Red Planet, ORA Pearlberry and ORA Hawkins.
If you are a Montipora capricornis or “cap” lover then you will want to check out ORA’s Supernatural Cap. I recently had a chance to see this coral in person and it is stunning to say the least. It has either a purple, dark green or brown base with super bright neon green polyps, quite a contrast in colors and appropriately named given its resemblance to a constellation of stars.
This coral grows much thicker than other plating Montiporas and, similar to other montis, is one of the easier SPS to keep. It requires medium to high lighting and will do fine under T5s, metal halides and LEDs. The coral can be placed anywhere in the tank but, like any cap, caution is required since caps can grow quickly and shade out neighboring corals below.
The ORA Supernatural Cap is a peaceful coral and will not harm other corals it comes in contact with. As for circulation, moderate to strong flow is recommended. ORA describes this coral as its most “exceptional” Capricornis and it is easy to see why it is in high demand among serious SPS collectors. A must have cap in my book!
If you would like some help with a new tank build, including help designing a custom aquarium, or help re-configuring your current setup then you can visit this page for more information. And if you are looking to add some equipment, I do sell GHL, Pax Bellum, Reef Octopus Calcium and Kalk Reactors and Royal Exclusiv products, including Dreamboxes, which is the equipment I use and recommend. I also sell Reef Brite metal halide and LED fixtures as well as Maxspect & IceCap Gyres.
As for additional insights and information, please explore my many other reef tank and SPS related articles as well as my YouTube channel. For an even deeper dive into reef tank care you can check out my Reef Keeping Master Class. This online course is an immersive and one of a kind educational tool designed to help reef aquarium hobbyists build and maintain a beautiful SPS reef tank. The course is a series of video presentations with some supplemental video from my YouTube channel. There are also quizzes to help students retain and understand the information presented in the course.
