Scientific Name: Gonipora Poritidae
Common Names: Flower Pot Coral; Daisy Coral
Care Level: Moderate - Hard
Origin / Habitat: Australia, Tonga
Temperament / Behavior: Gonipora corals are not overly aggressive, however space should still be provided between itself and other neighboring corals because as their flower like polyps extend, they will reach far our of their skeleton and can potentially sting neighboring corals.
Food: Gonipora Poritidae can be kept successfully in a reef tank without spot feeding as long as adequate lighting is provided. The symbiotic zooxanthellae will sustain them. However, we have found that they will benefit from spot feeding of mysis, brine shrimp, micro plankton's and other similarly sized meaty foods.
Light: Moderate light levels are required
Water Movement: Like most large polyp stony corals, a Flower Pot Coral benefits from moderate water flow. The polyps will remain retracted and under inflated if the water current is too fast.
