As many saltwater hobbyists are aware of, Goniopora have consistently maintained a very low survival rate in captivity for many years. In previous attempts to solve the problem of keeping Goniopora, researchers have often referred to a "mystery", or a missing link, a missing element, an invasive bacteria, a boring algae, or the lack of a proper food source as the root cause of their overall decline. What I have discovered is that there isn't a single mystery; that there isn't a single missing link, but that it is a collective of complications, which create multiple problems and compound problems. In The Goniopora Handbook, I identify these problems, set them in order, and demonstrate how they are solved. With the information that I have gathered from thousands of hours of research and experiments, I have developed a complete "System of Husbandry" that greatly increases the average lifespan of Goniopora in captivity; even to the point of being indefinite.
