Could you post a clearer pic please? If it is a sun coral, it won't need to be so high up as they aren't photosynthetic. You will need to feed it regularly for it to survive. Also, I like your rockwork, it looks nice.

You should spot feed every other day to everyday for the sun coral. It doesn't matter where you have it, but it would help if you could put it in a place with a high concentration of nutrients. Do you have a syringe or pipette? You will need to mix the food in tank water and blow it on the coral.

No problem. Im pretty sure that means its filter feeding. What are you feeding it? I think there are some food made specifically for corals but shrimp and brine should be fine.
