    A friend that was tearing down his tank gave me this and I know they tend to be difficult to keep, but I think I am ready for the challenge. Just wondering what advice or if any of you have had success keeping these alive.

    Should I target feed?? Saw online some say yes others say not needed If so what should I feed
    Some stay they need to be on sand-bed, others say keep them high (closer to the light) Is that true?


    My setup is a 20 gallon with T5's 96 watts. My only other corals are a leather toadstool, some zoas, and a hammer coral

    They needn't to be on sand-bed, you can just put them at the bottom of the tank.
    you'd better keep your light on 8 hours/day, and the temperature of you tank is 22-25 Degrees Celsius is better for your coral. By the way , you should add some traceelement in your tank, it is better for your coral too.

    Thanks for the articles. I really love this coral and I hope I will be able to keep it healthy and thriving in my aquarium.
