The Red Goniopora is one of the most beautiful coral in the market. It is commonly referred as flowerpot coral and makes a beautiful addition to any reef tank. The Red Goniopora is a very 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 corals. The Red 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 Red 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 Red Goniopora is traditionally prone to bacterial and fungal infection, which adds to the delicacy of its nature. Since it is very delicate in nature that needs care as it damages very easily, it is not a good choice for a beginner aquarist. The Red Goniopora requires maintaining the correct level of calcium and alkalinity which is undoubtedly important for skeletal developments. It is photosynthetic.
