I purchased this animal today. I was told by lfs
that it is a branching hammer coral or Euphyllia Parancora.
I was reading up on it and supposedly it feeds on zooxanthallate, but that it needs meaty foods.
Is it a branching hammer coral? How do I feed it meaty foods? I have table shrimp that I feed sometimes, could I just put that on the end of a feeding stick and feed it like an anemone?
Also, the lfs
told me to place it in a crevice or hole in the reef rock, but in my reading, I read it would do well in a deep sand bed. Should I just stick it down in the sand or is the crevice suggestion okay?
