Np. They are an odd coral imo. They are low light...under MH...and moderate waterflow. I had 2 in my tank, 1 is dead and the other is ok, but not as amazing as I wish it was. I just think my LEDs have too much penetration for them.

Cyphastrea are pretty easy. Some say they need high light, but I think those folks don't have that much light to begin with. I suggest medium to low to start with. If there is tissues receding I would check my cal/alk as low alkalinity can cause this IMO.
