Husbandry

Montipora gaimardi
Bernard, 1897

Description: Colonies have encrusting bases and branches which may be open or form a compact clump. The coenosteum forms a complex of fine ridges. Corallites are both in and between these ridges.
Color: Brown or green, sometimes with pale branch tips.
Habitat: Shallow reef environments.
Abundance: Sometimes common.
Similar Species: Montipora cactus and M. australiensis, neither of which have corallites in and between coenosteum ridges. See also M. hispida.
