The Golfball Sunflower 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 Golfball Sunflower Alveopora coral is not advised for beginners. The Golfball Sunflower Alveopora coral thrives well in a temperature range of 74-82 degree Fahrenheit, and low to moderate lighting and gentle water movement. The Golfball Sunflower Alveopora coral 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 Golfball Sunflower Alveopora coral is not an overly aggressive coral, but it is recommended to maintain space between it and other corals to avoid any accidents with its stings. The Golfball Sunflower Alveopora coral may benefit from the addition of calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the water. The Golfball Sunflower Alveopora coral requires low to moderate lighting combined with low water movement for its proper growth.
