    Hi first pic is a torch coral and the 2nd pic is a geniopora.. Not to burst your bubble but the geniopora is a very hard coral to keep and it needs a mature tank of a least a year or more with very stable parameters but one of the most awesome corals ever

    Thanks for the response, where would I get the goniopowder from? Also what flow should both the corals get, the torch is at the bottom of the tank with meduim flow and the geniopora is in the middle with a bit more flow. Do I need to target feed them both?

    I do add reef snow once and red sea coral colours. I feed flakes pellets, lobster eggs and I got frozen brine shrimp as well.
