One is trumpet coral, think I should move it to the substrate facing up? I'm afraid that moving it will make it worse!

When I got mine it looked like that. I moved it to the bottom and within a day or two it was bright green. Make to to test your calcium level too!

On top of the calcium and particles in the water, I target feed mine one every couple weeks. You can see in the center of each bell, when they are hungry, small tentacles come out

LFS said that I wouldn't have to feed either of the corals. Is this not true at all?

well you could try and put it on the bottom and it might do great but the damsels are real hardy fish, I am not sure what happened there. the fish do need a steady temp esp corals corals if too cold and too much flow the coral wont open and slowly die off from stress try moving it and get a non glass heater, if the heater is not needed it wont come on but coral alone is super touchy! I had a whole tank full and am down a few from figuring them out but I got it now, just gotta know what the coral you have like exactly! hope this helped!
