I have had him for about 3 weeks and I botched the acclimation. He was fully extended when I purchesed him and he has not been more than half extended sinse I botch the acclimation.Fly Guy said:I didnt know anything about them but i thought it was a beautiful coral so i just did a search on them.........
How long have you had him?????
I had an orenge one years ago that I did well with. It lasted 2 years before a friend of mine killed it when I gave her my tank.jenajet said:Did a search and it said it could take a several weeks for it to fully adjust to new setting. It also recommended low to med flow as well as high but indirect lighting( whatever that means). Hopefully it just needs some time to adjust. I also read they are difficult to keep for long periods of time.

I can't see how 'botching acclimation' would have done anything - there isn't much acclimation to be done -float it for temp, and tank it. In general corals aren't as sensitive to acclimation as many would have you believe.
Goniopora sp. usually last 6-9 months in captivity. After about 6 months they start to recede/stop opening fully and by 9 months they're pretty much done.

I always test the bagged water in anything I bring home. Both for salinity and alkalinity. Does that seem like overkill?
