This image shows three colors and body forms. Montipora are less agressive to each other than Acropora. Many times the plating Montipora grow together, and the plates try to grow over the other corals.

One of the growth plans that these corals use is over growing the other corals so that they get the needed light. This competition allows us to watch as two different colors of Montipora try to out grow each other. This competition causes both corals to grow faster.
