    Need some advice on keeping coral

    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.

    Long reads but probably the best info you'll find on identifying the species and appropriate care. Pretty coral. Good luck!
    SG = 1.024-6; Alkalinity 8.3-9.3 dKH; Calcium 420; Magnesium 1300; Temp = 76 to 80; pH = 7.9-8.3. Alkalinity and calcium are dependent on Mg.
