    Good timing of the article! Saw a lot of nice Gonis at MACNA. Picked up a pink one for myself.

    I read this article before purchasing my Gonis. Been using goniopower and reef chili two to three times a week and drop in some rotifers about once a month. I already have significant growth on all my frags in about six weeks. Wouldn't have known to use this type of supplement without this article[​IMG][​IMG]

    I love my goni's! My oldest one is over a year old in my tank now.

    Got a few smaller ones too.

    They are very slow growing IME. I don't spot feed them (ok, maybe like once every other month), but I do put coral food in the fish food mix and broadcast feed daily.

    Bpink, do you get any polyp extension? Ive had a similar small frag for about 4 months. I have it pretty high up under a Radion led. It has good polyp extension but has had no growth that I can tell. I havent been target feeding it much and from reading the posted article it seems like these like to be fed 3-5 times a week. I’m gonna give that a try and see what happens.

    If it puffs up and extends when you feed Roids it sounds like it’s hungry. Once you get the polyps extended try feeding it some roids directly from a turkey baster. I didn’t realize this type of coral needs more direct feeding. I’m gonna try feeding it more and see if I get some growth.
