Yellow Sun polyps care and ease...

While my tank is cycling I was trying to get the biggest range of color planned with fish and corals...

I love this and had tried it years back... it died because I didn't have enough lighting I'm sure.

What is the care level and needs to have this florish in one of my tanks... 29g with 130 watts.

Thanks!

sun polyps do not need light. They require regular "intense" feedings. You probably just did not feed it enough.

Your pic is a yellow polyp zoanthid. They are easy. Moderate light, med flow. I also have 2 colonies of them. Want a pic?
