Wow…the folks over at ORA are busy these days! They just released another new Montipora species. They call this one the Purple Undata. We will be retailing it for $69.99 and expect our first piece later this week.

The ORA Purple Undata is a brightly colored encrusting / plating Montipora. The polyps of this coral are small, purple in color and lightly scattered between the coenosteum ridges.
