Konnte bei meinem Exemplar feststellen, dass sie Strömung überhaupt nicht verträgt (an den Stellen, die direkt der Strömung ausgesetzt waren, starb sie ab) --> also eher wenig Strömung

Bei starker Beleuchtung und guten Wasserwerten wächst diese Koralle ähnlich schnell wie alle Montiporen und zeigt ein tolles Polypenbild. Bei Mondlicht fluoreszieren die Polypen sehr schön.
