Definitely an awesome coral. Mine likes low flow and moderate light. Keep it away from other corals, they have a nasty sting.

I'd definitely start it on the sand and acclimate it to your lights. If the coral is happy there it's polyps will be out, if it isn't it will be receeded into it's skeleton. You can place it on your rocks as well just don't hit it with a lot of flow, mine has it's polyps like very gently flowing and is super happy. The coral will let you know if it likes where you put it.

It catches the occasional mysis shrimp but no I don't directly feed it.

hammer, frogspawn, and torch corals are from the euphyllia family. i never feed mine. actually, it doesn't take any food at all (maybe i'm lucky that way). as long as you provide sufficient light, feeding is optional
