    Bright Green with Yellow Center Goniopora Flower Pot Coral 3.5 Inches


    This bright Goniopora coral is a great buy. The skeleton is about 3 inches. The common names for this coral are flower pot coral, ball coral, and daisy coral.

    Most Goniopora corals have extremely long polyps, sometimes up to 12 inches. By day, the polyps will be completely extended, and will typically be retracted in whole or part at night.  They usually are columnar and massive, and rarely do they branch.  They can come in a variety of colors, being green and brown (the most common) or pink, yellow, gray, and cream colored.  Goniopora sp. prefer calmer waters, which explains their prevalence in lagoons, reef flats, rubble zones, and other shallow areas. 

    This coral is very healthy. It prefers lower to moderate light and moderate flow.
