Hi,

Goniopora are lagoonal corals that generally thrive in warm (84-86 deg F) dirty water. They need a lot of food - mostly small particulate material, but also a lot of dissolved nutrients, and phytoplankton.

It is almost impossible for most aquarists to keep, as their tanks are far too clean. Generally colonies live for about 4-8 months and then die.

You might do a web search and see if you can find a copy of Dr. Rob Toonen's article on keeping this coral.
