    It is a highend goniopora. One of my favourites.

    That’s the thickest growing Goni I’ve seen. How difficult are they to keep? I’m thinking about growing a garden of them.

    Haha.. most reefer would like to do that.
    This one is highend, because they are slow growing and rare in the trade.

    This was the same coral 6 months earlier

    Which color would you prefer?

    Looks like it has changed color a bit? I’d like to get a variety as long as they get along. I may even go with alevapora. I’ve been out of the hobby for a while. Seems like they were difficult when they first came out. I don’t know if the recent frags are more hearty?

    Yes it did change color.
    The yellow you see, is a coral in distress due to ultra low nutrients.
    I still have a few gonio an alveo since 2013 in my tank[​IMG]

    Ya I’m waiting to put corals in due to low po4. Nitrate is back up to about 5. Still a new tank and I ran carbon without rinsing first and it drove nutrients way down. After I can consistently detect phosphates I’ll start stocking up.

    I was trying to trim the corals which reach the surface. By doing so breaking off a "small" frag.
    I don't even see the difference on the mothercoral

    Man that’s a lot of stony corals. You must have to dose quite a bit?

    My actual dosings:

    Kh= 1,9dkh / 223ml
    Calcium= 11ppm /45ml

    My light setup is not optimal otherwise it would be about double.[​IMG][​IMG]
