    Can someone tell me if my Goni is releasing toxin or food particles?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Why would you think it was toxins? Is the Goniopora otherwise healthy?

    I have never heard of a Gonipora releasing toxins, so I was wondering if this should be something I should know since I have a Goniopora.

    Are the objects little round items? Yes follow Chris's advice and look to see if you can find a youtube video for comparison and report back please.

    Prob spawning, but I am not sure. Another reason why I dont house this coral as not too much is known about them.
