thanks. I removed the
Rubber covers on the light switches. Will it matter? They were hard and I couldn't turn the switches on and off

Ok I added a scoop and a half of reef chilli and don't see the leather doing anything? The little polyps came out though before I added it

Not sure about the covers over the switches, probably a waterproof cover. The lights look good.
The coral will have little polyps that come out. Give it a day or 2 to get comfortable. It will perk up. I feed my corals every 3 days.

the polyps started coming out. I want sure if I should feed it now so I went ahead. Will I actually see it eating? As for the water proof covers I don't see that it maters if they are on it

No you won't see it actually eating. After a couple months you will notice the increasing size. Yeah the covers are probably not critical.

30 minutes should be plenty of time for the coral to feed.

Not sure about the shell turning white and green. Does it look like algae?
