    So I was at the LFS on Saturday and I saw this cool coral which I decided to buy - alveopora. Turns out it is much more difficult to care for than I originally thought, but too late to take it back. Anyone have any advice who has successfully kept these before?

    Yup
    You know, I had one that did really well for a long time. I didn't treat it special in any particular way. So, you might OK. For a while, anyway. :).

    Then again, mine did die after about 18 months all the sudden. So. There is that.

    The best advice I remember that people seemed to suggest was target feeding. I didn't do that, but it mostly seemed OK anyway.

    Thanks. I will try the coke bottle target feeding method. My clownish has stayed alive for 11 years in spite of some previous bad habits. Hopefully I can figure this one out
