Pretty much the same problem. I don't know of any particular types on alveopora that do better than others. It typically doesn't like direct MH
lighting preferring instead sometning less intense such as VHO
's. Alveopora don't usually do well in aquariums although there are cases where they adapt and do well. You can tell the difference by counting the tentacle tips...alveopora has 12...goniopora has 24. I think it's safe to say that most alveopora are more hardy than the g.lobata and perhaps not as good as g.stokesi. One of the biggest problems with these corals is that not a lot is really known about them. IMO
, you have to have perfect water conditions, enough food, and a good shot of luck. The stresses they suffer during shipping probably seals the fate of many of them before you or I ever even see them. One of the reasons g.stokesi tends to do better is that it is a free living colony and doesn't have to be broken off the reef. I would think the same would apply to alveopora colonies...if you could get one that wasn't broken off the reef and then subjected to bad shipping conditions, you would have a good chance of acclimating it and keeping it alive. Some aquarists have reported success keeping these corals in beds of seagrass as well.
