Doughnut coral care

Picked up this awesome doughnut coral at LFS.

Anyone have experience, advice? I know they are low flow medium light.

It is a little different from scoly. If you google meat or doughnut coral you can see.

Oh sorry it is acanthophyllia. You're right, I usually see scolymia is referred to as doughnut coral and acanthophyllia as meat coral.

It will take meaty foods. I would feed it a couple times a week after lights out. Otherwise, decent parameters and you are good to go. They are pretty easy.

No. You aren't going to see that without some sort of massive trauma to the tissue.
