Goniopora and Alveopora have gained great popularity in the Saltwater aquarium hobby. Ultimately, they are not only outstandingly colored, but also bring movement into the aquarium - a great addition therefore for a reefaquarium.

The main difference between the two species is simple: Alveopora have 12 tentacles, Goniopora 24 tentacles.

Most of them thrive in a reefaquarium, yet some are still considered difficult today. Nevertheless, with the many additives we have to offer today, and the appropriate feeding, it is easier than ever to keep these astonishing corals.Our experience has shown that aquariums in which dustfoods are fed, Goniopora and Alveopora grow much faster and color up much nicer.

Gonioporas and Alveoporas should get a moving but never direct current, otherwise they will not open and might die.
They need medium light intensity and can therefore be established between the middle and bottom zone of the aquarium.
They are not quite as sensitive to water quality, but they should still be offered lower No3 and Po4 concentrations.

The identification of the species is not easy despite good reference books.
To be able to do this 100% you would have to have a skeleton.
Therefore we have to classify species as "sp." 

***We will never ship freshly cut coral !***
We take great care to ensure the well being of all our corals. Before pieces are deemed saleable, we wait for every piece to have formed an encrusting edge and even develop baby polyps. As a professional supplier of quality frags in Germany, we differ significantly from our competitors. Our care and breeding practices for these wonderful corals make it possible to bring you the healthiest pieces available. The biggest difference, is in the regular feeding of the polyps; we feed LPS Grow and Color Food from Fauna Marin . All corals are prepared under optimum conditions to a healthy aquarium life and we consider this to be the optimum color formation under LED or blue T5 lighting.

New orders begin processing the moment we receive them. Very rarely do we encounter a delay. If we do, and your corals or fish are not yet ready for dispatch, you have the option for a possible replacement animal or a refund for the amount of an animal. In such cases, you will be contacted via phone (if we have your phone number) or email. Of course, we do everything possible to avoid such inconvenience from the start.

Please note that coral variations in form and color can occur in the original photo. Changes in color may also result from transport or due to the color representation on the computer screen . Our corals are lit with Radions G4 Pro and are photographed in these conditions. The colors of the animals may vary from our photos when placed in your aquarium, depending on the type of lighting used.
