These Sun Corals don't tend to do well in common home aquaria. They need to be fed some type of phytoplankton or oyster eggs or something like that. Daily feedings are probably best and if you do it at a certain time, they may even start to expand before you feed them (give that a couple of months at least...). They prefer moderately strong currents (in nature a current that will bring them food), so the closer to the powerhead the better. Most of the time you won't see the polyps expanded, just around feeding time. I have tried this species of coral a couple times and have never had long success with it.

It is doing much better where i had put it the other day it is on the side by the powerhead . Too bad for us newbies falling for the pretty stuff and then finding out you werent told the negative stuff. Which actually i do make a habit to ask..... and have found. Most are more worried about the sale
