The bottom pic in the lesser starlet coral group was when this group was looking its best. It was shortly thereafter that is just died off quite rapidly. There is little information on the web about this coral, probably because it's not an attractive coral, and wouldn't be a desirable purchase. My assumption is that this coral must be kept in a nutrient rich environment, which is not often found in aquarium conditions. Lighting may have also played a factor in the demise of my colony, though it seems odd that it did well for several months, then just faded away as the tank started to mature a bit..
Anyways, My suggestion is to give it good light, and hope for the best, but if you lose it, dont let it get you down. Also, they will accept meaty foods like brine and mysis, so regular spot feedings may help too.
