    hi guys

    i was really really really really really really stupid and brought this coral which looked really really great but its really hard to keep I've been told and i just wondered if somebody with a larger reef wanted to trade or buy this coral as i really don't want it to die and it will probably die in my tank. pm me if you are interested and please come A.S.A.P if you can

    thanks

    How long have you had it?
    There appears to be a fair amount of skeleton showing, was it like that when you bought it?

    If you got it yesterday, try take it back to the shop.
    That alveopora does not look healthy at all. Unfortunately they one of the coral that once they start dying, they really are hard to get back to health.
    I think if the shop doesn't take it back you should rathe reconsider donating it to someone who might be able to nurse it back to health.
