LiveAquaria® is proud to offer the ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Long Polyp Goniopora Coral. Also known as Flowerpot Coral, it is easy to see how the Marshall Island Long Polyp Goniopora lives up to its common name since it resembles a bouquet of flowers. It is the rounded or ball-shaped variety and should not be confused with its branching relatives. It is somewhat aggressive so space should be provided between itself and other neighboring corals. Its polyps can extend far past its base into the reef aquarium, where it can sting other species of corals.
The ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Long Polyp Goniopora will thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, ranging from power compacts, T-5s, powerful LEDs and up to the more intense metal halides. This Goniopora will satisfy the majority of their nutritional requirements by means of photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae hosted within its body.
The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides the majority of its nutritional requirements from the algae's light driven process of photosynthesis. It will benefit from the addition of foods designed for corals and invertebrates.
The ORA® Aquacultured Marshall Island Long Polyp Goniopora Coral is attached to a plug and can be easily placed in holes or between the rockwork of the reef aquarium.
