Several branches from this coral are available. These animals differ only slightly in form. You will receive an offshoot similar to the animal depicted in the photo.

The new US Style Primefrag® System is easy to use, low in cost and designed especially for aquariums that use LED lighting as their primary source of light.
This system will also work well on aquariums using hybrid or pure T5 lighting.

Goniopora and Alveopora have enjoyed great popularity in aquarium care for many years. They are not only super colored, they also move - a good addition therefore for the sea water aquarium.
The main difference between the two species is simple: Alveopora have 12 tentacles, Goniopora 24 tentacles.
Some of them have a good shelf life and are often easy to reproduce.
Certainly not all species can be sheared over the same ridge, some are still considered difficult today. Nevertheless, with the many additives we have today, and the appropriate feeding, it is easier, than without.
We know that many people cover a part of their diet with light, but they are really fit and grow in species that can filter usable food out of the water.
Our experience has shown that aquariums in which dust food (planktonic) is added they grow better and stand better.
Gonioporas and Alveoporas should get a moving but never direct current, otherwise they will not open.
They need a medium light intensity and can therefore be established between the centre and ground level.
They are not quite as sensitive to water quality, but they should still be offered low No3 and Po4 concentrations in the water.
Experience has shown that you are better off with trace element additions and more frequent water changes.
This also indicates that, in addition to food, they can also absorb many other substances from the water.
The determination 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.
Due to the unknown variables that can happen during shipping, we cannot provide a 100% arrive alive guarantee for live animals , despite all efforts.
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 animals are lit with T5 tubes "Aqua Science Duo" and "Aqua Science Blue" in a 1:1 ratio 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.
All animals undergo a minimum one-week quarantine and are free of parasites when delivered.
Our average water parameters are:
Salinity : 34-35 psu
Calcium : 400-420 mg/l
Magnesium : 1200-1250 mg/l
dkH : 7.5-8.0
Nitrate : 2-15 mg/l
Phosphate : 0.02-0.08 mg/l
Temperature : 23-25 ° C
In our facilities, we use the new sea salt "Professional Sea Salt" by Fauna Marin . We also use the Balling light method in addition to their sea salt.
We are professional pet shippers with over 20 years of shipping and packing experience. All corals and other animals are carefully placed into their packing box and prepared with care. We take great care preparing corals and other animals for a safe transport so that they arrive to you in perfect condition. It is not primarily about the color of the animal upon arrival, it is about the health and nutritional status of coral and fish. The final coloration reach corals within a few weeks after being placed into your aquarium.
