I love my sun coral. I used to target feed it three to four times a week but now it is used to coming out at tank feeding time and I only target feed it once every couple of weeks as supplimental feedings. Doing great.
Aren't gorgonians and tubastrea non-photosynthetis also???
the tubastrea is a sun coral. there are both outter and inner-reef sp. of gorgonia. While the outter-reef (Gorgonia flabellum) tends to prefer deeper water it still depends on lighting (deeper penetrating light) as an energy source. They are less colorful (brown, deep reds and purples) then the inner reef sp. which tend to be more orange, yellow and red, probbally due to the higher light intensitey.
