One of the nicest gonoporas we have. Simply just bursting with colors! This piece was acquired from our friends at Unlimited Color Corals a few years back, and has grown into one of our favorite pieces in the whole farm. This short-polyped variant of Goniopora encrusts over substrate just like a Cyphastrea or Leptastrea would.
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!
