alveopora..

Does anyone have any of this? I got some the other week and have been reading up on it but all the information i have is contradicting each other. Does it like low light, medium, or high? I have 130w jbj pc's, will this be enough for it? If so where should i place it in the tank? Thanks a lot!

Mod to high light with low flow so the polyps will fully extend. They have a low success rate in aquariums.

How close is that anchor coral? I'd keep an eye out for sweepers tentacles from the anchor, it's liable to sting the alveopora pretty good and lessen it's chances of survival.

Oh sorry, its in a 29 gal. I have it about 2inches away from the hammer coral but i have a rock in between them so they dont touch each other. Why do they have such a low success rate?

There are many theories, but the truth is, if we knew for sure why they (and their relatives Gonipora) did so poorly...they probably wouldn't be hard to keep at all.

Just so you realize...that anchor coral can put out sweepers up to about 24" in length if it decides to take a disliking to anything near it. Make sure it's downstream from the alveopora.

Are the anchor coral and the hammer coral the same thing? the reason why i ask is that it was sold to me as a hammer coral so if its something different I'd like to know. I used to have the alveo. next to a long tenticle plate coral and i noticed it was getting purple and swollen so thats why I moved it. Now it seams to be doing just fine.

Yes, hammer and anchor coral are Euphyllia anchora, you can see why I never refer to it as "hammer coral".

I`m going to have to change my ways also because I was calling mine an hammer coral also. From now on it`s an anchor coral.
