#Gonipora
Gonipora has long flowing polyps that look like tiny underwater flowers. But don’t be fooled this fleshy coral has a hard skeleton often shaped like a ball. Gonipora corals have 24 tentacles on the end of each polyp, and can be found in nearly every color imaginable. Gonipora looks similar to Alveopora, however, Alvepora has 12 tentacles, so if you find this coral and it has too many tentacles to count you’ve got yourself a Gonipora. https://reefdivers.io/identify-20-stony-corals-indonesia/4456 #CoralIdentification #Coralreef #Gonipora #CoralID #CoralIdentification #Coralreef #Gonipora #CoralIDcommon.seeMore
