130

Coral Line by: Nick, Nicole, Ashley & Nicky Macarchuk

Coral Type: Branching

Coral species: Montipora digitata

Note: you will notice the growth rate has gone down for this line, and from the photo at 3 months you can see the corals are noticeably smaller. It appears that something is eating the tips of the fragments growing here, possibly a parrotfish. We will put a gopro down on the nursery to get a better idea of what is going on! All lines of this species have experienced the same negative growth, but all lines show a good survival rate. Some of the bigger frags seem to have grown nicely though so we will keep a special eye on those!
