The Flowerpot / Gonipora  is a stunning and hardy coral that comes in a variety of colors, including green, brown, and even pink. Its intricate polyp structure and delicate branching make it a standout addition to any reef tank.

To care for your Flowerpot / Gonipora , we recommend the following tank specifications:

  • Lighting: The Flowerpot / Gonipora prefers moderate to high lighting conditions, so we recommend using LED lights with a spectrum of 400-450 nm and a PAR value of 150-250.

  • Water Flow: This coral prefers moderate to strong water flow, so aim for a turnover rate of 10-20 times per hour.

  • Water Parameters: The Flowerpot / Gonipora is relatively hardy and can tolerate a range of water conditions, with a temperature range of 75-80°F, a pH range of 8.1-8.4, and a salinity range of 1.025-1.026.

  • Feeding: While the Flowerpot / Gonipora obtains most of its nutrition through photosynthesis, it will also benefit from supplemental feedings of meaty foods, such as mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, or plankton.

In terms of placement in the aquarium, Flowerpot / Gonipora prefers to be positioned in areas with moderate water flow, where it can extend its polyps and capture passing planktonic food. It can also tolerate moderate to high light levels, but it appreciates being positioned in the lower to mid-levels of the tank.

It is important to note that the Flowerpot / Gonipora  can be aggressive towards other corals in the tank, so it is best to provide it with ample space and to avoid placing it too close to other corals.

With these tank specifications in place, your Flowerpot / Gonipora  will be a thriving and healthy addition to your reef tank. And not only will it add beauty to your aquarium, but it will also contribute to the overall health of your system by filtering the water and providing shelter for other reef inhabitants.

So why wait? Add a Flowerpot / Gonipora to your aquarium today and enjoy the beauty and hardiness of this amazing coral!
