The plate-like growing Red Stony Coral Montipora "Red" is called Velvet Coral or Velvet Coral in English, describes its appearance quite well. The tiny red polyps have a velvety appearance. Montipora sp. Red shows particularly intense bright red hues in marine aquariums when it finds good conditions. This SPS stony coral occurs in nature in the Indo-Pacific.
The red plate-like growing stony coral belongs to the SPS corals considered to be somewhat more difficult. However, it is not as demanding as other SPS corals and can therefore be maintained by informed beginners.
