read over that link to melevsreef that onitweak gave you. He has an entire page devoted to the care of this particular coral. Including a few tips for feeding it. It is a beautiful coral but it does take a bit of time and work.

You might want to make sure your LFS can tell you about your purchases before you buy them.

More advice would also be when purchasing something not only ask for the generic name but the Scientific name. Makes telling things apart much easier when things look a lot alike.

It is a sun coral. What` they`ve told you is right and pretty good advice.

A word of advice my friend, before you purchase anything you should know what its requirements are and read a little on it. I know that when something at the LFS catches your eye, you want to take it home. Trust me it happens to me. The best thing to do is do a little research on it.

That is not a sun coral. That looks like what is described as a yellow colony polyp on liveaquaria. Easy to care for. Doesn't require the hand feeding that a sun coral does. Just needs decent light.
