Is my new coral ok?

Just got this guy at work yesterday. I was looking at it today and thought maybe it had white line disease? I belie that's where it spreads up the coral killing it, or am I paranoid and the coral is ok?

Hard to say with alveopora, give it a day or two and see if it progresses, you do know these are the first cousins of goniporas and tend to suffer the same fate...

No I didn't realize that My brother has one in his tank that has been doing great and actually one of the few people I trust at my work said they are not terribly difficult to take care of. I guess I should have checked them out first Everytime this happens I swear I'll never buy on impulse again and do a pretty good job for a while but then everytime I break down and buy something I get burnt..you'd think I would have learned my lesson by now

Well it seems that a fair amount of people on RC have been able to keep this coral alive for 8+months and still growing and looking good so hopefully if this one is healthy he'll be with me for a while

The trend for alveopora and gonipora dying is anywhere from 6 to 18 months, they will eventually open less and less until they die. While I have seen many more alveopora success stories, we are also starting to see more and more gonipora success stories, but I would still consider either coral for advanced reefkeepers.

Unfortunately I do not consider myself this......but if the coral is healthy and this isn't white band disease or bleaching badly I think I have a good chance at keeping him alive for a while at least.
