MODERN AQUACULTURE Volume 20, Number 5
The aquarists at Inter-Fish Pty Ltd (Inter-Fish) have smashed through the final frontier of Goniopora husbandry, revealing their success in creating sexually propagated (captive-bred) Gonipora corals for the first time in aquarium history. CORAL Magazine discussed this breakthrough with Don Gilson, Principle and Managing Director, and Dr. Luchang Shao, General Manager and Lead Coral Spawning Scientist at Inter-Fish.
A few smaller test shipments of these aquacultured corals have already arrived in the United States and were distributed from the Biota Aquariums facility in Florida. Currently, Biota’s culture efforts are focused on Acorpora; hobbyists can expect varieties in several classic growth forms described as staghorn, bottlebrush, tabling, and bushy.
