Jeesh! Don't be so harsh on us, you only posted yesterday .

1: Enchinata: low-medium light & flow
2: clove polyps: same
3: pink coco worm: filter feeder, doesn't need light, medium flow

Coco worm is my fav. out of the 3. Choices aren't too bad

Hope you have a good recovery.

Yeah, no doubt.

The coco worms are very hard to keep alive and most people don't have any luck with them. I would suggest getting either live or bottled phytoplankton to target feed the coco worm.

Sorry folks its the medication. I was getting anxious because I want to give them the best care. Thanks for the help. These are my newest frags. I've been keeping a few other corals since my start up and they are doing great. The coco worms looks good. It's always out and I have it in a spot where it gets plenty of food flow from when I'm feeding the fish. The enchinata acan was looking better when I had it towards top of tank. I put it on the sand bed about 3 days ago and doesn't look as good as it did before I moved it down. The other coral in the pic is looking pretty bad right now and some pieces have come off. Thank you!

The cocoworm won't be eating regular food but instead filters more microscopic food from the water column such as phytoplankton and zooplankton.
