Montipora digitata

Montipora digitata (Figure 1) is an extremely fast growing SPS. Choose your colors with forethought. You're going to have a *lot* of it :) Aquarists keeping this animal with large fish often have a hard time keeping the colonies in reasonable sized pieces because the fish "bulldoze" them. But don't think I'm trying to discourage keeping this animal. It comes in a variety of colors and is *very* rewarding.

In Figure 2, a demonstration of how easily this coral is divided. I am snapping it with my fingers. Cutters can be used for more specific cuts. I've also been playing with setting it against the glass to get flat spots in the growth to make flat spots for better looking colonies. It's working quite well. :)

In Figure 3, we see the divided colonies.
