    Def looking better, always had the best luck putting gonio on the sand. I actually just got a nice green one this weekend. I had initially had one but my clown hosted it so I had to sell it so it wouldn't slowly smother it.

    Gonio's can have a limited lifespan as they don't do well in captivity. Usually they're good from anywhere between 6-months to a year. It's a shame as they are gorgeous corals.

    Let's hope both ours do well for a long time!

    i kept thes for 2 years in my 55 gallon and probly 6 months after i baught them they poped out little babys u can only see the baby balls of gonipora poping out whene the tenticles retract from the skeliton after a little while the balls fall of the mother but it takes a long time for them to fall like a loose tooth. i keept the mother colony and baby frags under metal halides but the mothers did eventually die i think thes corals just dont like sumthing where doin but u can keep them for a little bit just read, there very pretty ;D
