The Parameters We Maintain
Keep an eye on calcium, this is crucial for goniopora growth. If you do find that your calcium levels are low then check your magnesium levels first as magnesium makes calcium available.The Temperature We Maintain
The most common temperature for marine tanks is between 24ºC - 28ºC (76ºF - 83ºF). Be sure to avoid tank temperature over 30ºC (86ºF) during the hot summer.Positioning In Your Tank
Water FlowLow to moderate water flow to allow the polyps to move freely.LightingLow to medium lighting but keep an eye on how your coral responds to the lighting and adjust this accordingly (i.e - placing the goniopora higher in your tank if desired).NutrientsThis is a personal choice for each individual hobbyist. We are happy to give you further advice if you are not sure.Compatibility with other coralsGoniopora will sting nearby corals so avoid more than one species in your tank to prevent the release of bioactive chemicals that is toxic to other goniopora species.
