Well I messed up yesterday and spend $50 on a alveopora not realizing they are close relatives to goniporas. Is there any index of corals that is maybe ranked in order of how easy they are to keep alive and care for? Or is there any chance somebody knowledgable would like to make a sticky listing some good beginner/medium/difficult corals. I don't mind researching corals before I buy them and realize I should have but if I had an idea what to look for before I even went shopping it would help a lot
How long can I expect this coral to live assuming it's decently healthy now? Any special care I should provide for it? I read about it in Eric Borneman's book Aquarium Corals and it didn't say too much. I plan on finding more info tomorrow after work if possible.
Wish I would have used this $50 for a couple frags
that would have stood a chance in my tank
