Montipora digitata
Critter Category: 
SPS Corals

About the size of a one dollar coin, this patch is Montipora digitata. It grew from a tiny puddle, and after several months new branches formed. The polyps are orange, and it looks very vibrant in person. The coral encrusts to the rock to anchor itself before the piece can begin to form a colony.
