Exclamation chili coral

anyone have any experience with one of these?
a rather large specimen was basically thrown into my lap
so far i know they are filter feeders and need to be in a place of high flow.

any help would be appreciated.

well they are non-photosynthetic coral, so they need to be hand-fed fairly often. They similar requirments as the sun coral. If you want more information this is the only thing i could find on them

They need to be in a shaded area, preferably attached to the bottom side of a rock overhang. They also need to be target fed as blazeyreef stated. I had one, but most likley due to impromper care on my part it is no longer.
Bascially it's a great looking coral that you will never see due it's placement in the tank.
