My Sun Coral finally opened up. I am feeding all my corals Kents micro-vert and DT's phyto. Is there anything else I have to do for them?

Salt will raise your blood pressure,
Saltwater will lower it .

Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?
I think so Brain, but there's still a bug in there from last time.

The micro-vert and dt's are fine but I believe the sun coral needs to be fed something more substatial (mysid or soaked brine) And each polyp needs to be fed for it to thrive.

Agreed. Your sun coral is more of a "meat and potatoes" animal. It should be target fed mysis or krill at least three times a week. It needs substance.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
