The Wild Orchid Montipora has some rather unique attributes. It has colors similar to the Superman Montipora, but polyps are larger in size and are similar to the polyps found on the pink Sandollar LE. As compared to the Superman Montipora, the Wild Orchid base color is more of a purple then the typical Superman blue. Its larger polyps also appear more pink then red. These polyps can develop white tips on their tentacles that can also extend fairly well during the daytime.
