So, I may have finally found alveopora, but I've read that goniopora are notoriously rough on other tank inhabitants and even caused skin reactions for ORA handlers. I plan to actually call ORA and try to get more information but I was hoping that someone on the forums might have hands-on experience. Question is, Alveopora are no longer considered to be taxonomically closely-related to goniopora and are instead more closely related to acropora whereas goni's are moreso to porites. Would anyone happen to know if this means they release fewer toxins, if any at all, into the water column? I would be exceedingly remiss to add anything into my tank which might slow the growth of my other corals (yes I have an echinophyllia chalice but it's exceedingly tame). I have a condition which prevents my body from being able to properly ramp-down and deal with recurrent exposure to inflammation without external corticosteroid intervention as well, so I'm kind of mulling over that bit as well. Would love to know if anyone has more information about the animals.
