The Alveopora coral is composed of gnarled branches that divide irregularly. It features large corralites that are composed of interlocking networks of rods and spines. Since it is difficult to handle, the Alveopora catalai is not advised for beginners. It thrives well in a temperature range of 74-82 degree Fahrenheit, and low to moderate lighting and gentle water movement. The Alveopora catalai inhabits soft substrates in the tank, and mainly avoids the area with high water current. When its polyps are open it gives resemblance to a bouquet of flowers, and when displayed under actinic light, it glows. Although the Alveopora catalai is not an overly aggressive coral, but it is recommended to maintain space between it and other corals to avoid any accidents. It may benefit from the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. The Alveopora catalai is quite delicate and may be somewhat better than with the related Goniopora. It thrives well in fairly nutrient rich lagoon type reef tank.
