Alveos & Gonis

Goniopora, often called flowerpot coral, is a genus of colonial stony coral found in lagoons and turbid water conditions. Goniopora have numerous daisy-like polyps that extend outward from the base, each tipped with 24 stinging tentacles which surrounds a mouth.

Alveopora, also known as the Flowerpot or Sunflower coral, is an amazing, if often overlooked, LPS coral that will bring plenty of motion, texture, and pastel color to a reef tank. Alveopora coral care is not nearly as painful as one might think when compared to their similar-looking cousins, goniopora.
