As it says in the 2nd link -
Please do not buy Goniopora!

These corals are notoriously difficult to keep alive, there are 1 or 2 success stories but 9 times out of 10 the coral is going to die.

Something that was said in the first article "Its natural habitat of turbid lagoons indicates that it may benefit from less than pristine water." made me think of something my LFS said to me the other day. Many corals arent doing well that should do well eg. elegence, because reefers are so determined to have prestine water conditions that they are stripping the water of any nutrients it has that these corals need to survive. Just a thought, maybe super clean isnt always super healthy.

Just because water does not look clear and clean does not mean that it is dirty water. You can have low visibility because of plankton but the water is still good.
very valid point. and i do think that overall I personally overskim and then add what i think is needed to the water, and i am fairly certain i get that wrong more often than right:(
