Fire coral (milliopora)

Has anybody had any experience with fire corals before I got in on a group buy and I'm getting one at the end of the week. Just chasing general care and pre cautions about them

I'd treat it like any other sps coral. It's photosynthetic right?

they are much easier to care for then SPS corals. Grow Like weeds, DONT put it in contact withany main rock. It should be alone in the sand bed because it will take over and its hard to get rid of. Great looking coral. Will sting you if you touch it.
