    Joe Burger's (aka JBNY) occupational life has absolutely nothing to do with the reefing world. He is solely a hobbyist, who loves the amazing world of aquaria and those awesome, but sometimes frustrating, corals we call SPS. Joe has been keeping aquariums since the 2nd grade so...he's been intrigued by them for quite some time. In 2000, he started keeping reef tanks, focusing mostly on SPS. His tanks have been featured on web sites, in forums, magazines, and books. He has been sharing his experiences and helping fellow SPS hobbyists for the last 15 years, whether it is by writing articles, participating in speaking engagements, or being an active presence in the online communities.

Common names:cauliflower coral

Difficulty Level:pocillopora is one of the most forgiving SPS corals.

Feeding: Pocillopora has extremely small polyps and only the ability to capture the smallest items. Feeding is not usually needed in a well lit reef.

Lighting (Level 6 to 10): These corals easily adapt to all medium to high light conditions, and they do it relatively easily. Less acclimation is needed, but care should still be taken.

Water flow: Moderate to strong flow is needed to keep these corals clear of debris.

Placement: Pocillopora is a very peaceful coral and should be placed away from others with more aggressive tendencies. Keep in mind their unique growth forms when placing them.

General: These corals can easily be confused with some species of branching montipora and birdsnest. Luckily their care is very similar.
