Flowerpots are notorious for dying for no reason (atleast as far as anyone can tell). They are one of the hardest corals to keep long term on the market imo.

A guy at my LFS said that with those each polyp had to be fed. He didn't recommend anyone getting them unless you were fully dedicated. I steered clear. Good luck though!

Mysis shrimp will do fine. Nothing huge though preferabbly minced up.

Brine is very low in nutrients so I usually opt for mysis between the two and krill is usually pretty large. I've never dealt with daphnia so can't give you any advice from experience there.

Zoas, palys, acans, brains, and chalices if you've got enough light

I haven't had any problems with mine whatsoever.. I haven't heard that they're notorious for dying. That's interesting though..

It doesn't look bad to me, it looks just like mine in the morning.. What's your flow and light like?
