Thank you!!

Cant say enough about the Berghia Nudribranch. Chemical free, absolutely no stress on the tank. Spent years battling Aiptasia, this is an excellent method of elimination. Glad we discovered Salty Underground. Thank you!!

Aquacultured Emerald Wisker Goniopora Coral T-3-16-k

58

This goniopora gets its name from the long skirts.And the emerald tint on the ends.  It is approx. .5 to .75 inches .When open it is 1 to 1.25 inches. It is on a frag plug .

The common names for this coral are flowerpot coral, ball coral, and daisy coral. Aquacultured corals are hardier and easier to keep in the home reef aquaria than their wild caught counter-parts.

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.
