placement doesn't matter as long as it gets enough light and medium flow. it's an easy coral to grow, no worries at all if you have successfully kept other corals before.

+1 look for feeding tentacles at night and it will be puffy during the day.

Thanks... Just doesn't look right on the sand, will move it higher tomorrow. Already saw the tentacles after lights out. Will target feed tomorrow evening.

It depends on your lighting. Mine is in the sandbed under my radions. Put a good emphasis on the flow it gets though. I had another colony right beside it that just died off. Had one before these two that did similar. Just never the best of luck with them, though a good beginner coral, seem to be finicky regarding flow. It is too bad since they look really nice in the kryptonite green and candy cane...would both go so well with my current blue colony.

So should I just leave it be on the sandbed? It's in a medium/higher flow area (towards the corner
of the tank that gets quite a bit of movement)... It seemed to enjoy the LED intensity as it opened up almost immediately after drip acclimating and adding to tank...

I'd keep it there if it's happy. You can see the tentacles in the pic starting to show. Make sure it is nice and puffy in the morning and you should be good to go.

Ok... I just added it tonight (along with some zoas and 2 tiger nassarius snails). When you say puffy, do you mean after the lights come on?

Sniperhank 11-09-2013 10:51 PM

Yeah, it should stay inflated rather than looking like a colorful piece of skeleton.

Flaxon-Waxon 11-09-2013 10:55 PM

Ok cool thanks. I'll put up a pic tomorrow if I have any concerns.
