Sun coral

Hey guys bought a sun coral yesterday? Heard a few bad luck stories about keeping them.

Anyone had any experiences with them and have any tips on how to look after them?

I have one. I keep it in low light and moderate flow. Mine only comes out at night. When you feed it, you need to target feed it and at each individual head. Good luck.

I feed mine with frozen mysis shrimp. As Kio said you have to make sure you feed each individual polyp or head. I put mine under a rock ledge.

Thanks for your replies.

Mine is slightly shaded down towards the bottom of the tank. You can see it on my pics at the right.

U reckon I should move it into more shade?
