No such thing as Gonophora, as far as I know. I think you mean Goniopora. Or Hydnophora. Anyway, Goniopora are touchy. I have never had one, but if I was to get one I would get an aquacultured pieces. ORA has a nice Red Goniopora. Here: ORA Red Goniopora | Goniopora sp. | Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums

We were trying to figure out what you meant. Either way, its photosyntetic. It might benefit from phyto but it will more than likely eat from water column and light. What ever it is.

Yep. At some level you can argue that everything benefits from phyto because it is the bottom of the food chain, which feeds the pods, which feeds the coral etc. But here are some small links to read up: Flower Pot Coral - True Red
or
Horn Coral, Fluorescent
After reading the bottom sentence of these, it looks like goniopora will eat phyto and hydnophora doesn't.

They probably do eat zooplankton. What kind of zooplankton are you feeding?

i like feeding cyclo-peeze to corals like that. target feed it while all the pumps are off. don't just put it in the water column.
