The Purple Goniopora is one of the most beautiful coral available at saltwaterfish.com. It is commonly referred as the flowerpot coral and makes a beautiful addition to any reef tank. The Purple Goniopora is an aggressive coral and must be provided with ample space so that its long polyps do not come in contact with other coral specimens. It dwells directly on the sand bed, but many species will also do well higher on the rockwork. Therefore the tank should be well established with sand bed and rockworks. If your tank is having clownfish not hosting any other sea anemones, make sure whether you really want to keep this in your tank, because the clown fishes love these coral to death. The Purple Goniopora is semi-aggressive toward other marine invertebrates, and is nocturnal in feeding habits. It mainly feeds on acellular marine invertebrates, phytoplankton, zooplanktons, and meaty bits. Intense or medium light is crucial for the Purple Goniopora to grow, even shutting down the lights for 24 hours can also affect adversely on this type of coral. Perfect arrangement of light is necessary for it to thrive well. The Purple Goniopora is traditionally prone to bacterial and fungal infection, which adds to the delicacy of its nature. Since it is very delicate in nature and should be handle with care as it damages very easily, therefore it is not a good choice for a beginner aquarist. The Purple Goniopora is very important to maintain the correct level of calcium and alkalinity which is undoubtedly important for skeletal developments. It is photosynthetic and doesn?t take any known foods.
