You know the feeling I'm sure, you sometimes just want a challenge. lol
Lol. Yeah. I hear ya. My encrusted gonipora is my challenge. I'll take a pic of it later when the lights come on. My daughter wanted it sooooo bad because it was pink- so I took the plunge and I watch it like a hawk. My husband jokes that I even count the little flowers that pop up every day to make sure it's thriving

Well on my to buy list is still that coral I linked, a wellso brain, a red gonipora, an elegance and a pink birdsnest.

I had a wellso brain early on but I bleached it out and the aussie elegance I had as well but it had to be given away after my clowns started hosting it. lol I'd like another crack at those two corals lol

I'd love to see a picture, maybe I will fall in love with it and need to get one too. LOL

I'm a big fan of pinks and reds and blues so maybe it is another option for me. I've been eying setosa's too, they seem so brightly colored.

Regarding goniopora's...

That's the thing. Rather than an immediate decline, it can take about a year to 18 months before they begin to deteriorate.

Having them for a few months is too early to know how they will ultimately do. It's the hobbyist that has them for at least 2 or 3 years that is on the road to success with this coral.

I've had it about a month now. I keep it high up. High lighting high flow. Feed phytoplankton daily and cyclopeeze every other day. Other than that- nothing special
