Mystery Coral: June #3, Revealed!
07 Jul, 2022
URI Andromeda Goniopora
United Reef International
Van Nuys, California
Geographic Origin: Jakarta, Indonesia
Light Level: Low to Moderate
Flow Level: Moderate
Care Level: Intermediate
Notes: This stunning Goniopora displays a beautiful green base with yellow tentacles coming to an end with gorgeous red-pink polyps. Gonis are best kept in moderately high nutrient systems with a regular feeding schedule in place to keep them extremely happy; routine feeding encourages polyp elongation and growth!
Photographer and URI partner Derek Hopkins shared several images of this coral under varying wavelengths of light, reminding coral keepers how lighting and photography techniques can dramatically alter the appearances of a coral.
In-depth Gonipora coverage was most recently published in the May/June 2022 issue of CORAL Magazine.
