Coral question

Do corals need to be fed? And any other coral information that you think a rookie should know would be appreciated. (I know the basics just not advanced in knowledge of corals) Thank you

Depends on the coral but most grow on light. They also need calcium and other trace elements to grow. Some grow on light and eat food like mysis shrimp etc.
