If you want a coral with a punch, this is the one for you. Beautiful swaying polyps with an iridescent red body adorned with blue tips. For so much beauty, it's also managable for most reefers looking to try out a first goniopora. This was one of the first gonioporas we've cultured, and it's been one of the most forgiving to care for.

 

Some reefers struggle with Goniopora sp., but we have had amazing success using coral foods such as Benepets. Give it a weekly feeding and you should be all set!
