    Sharon and I recently purchased a bright orange sun coral at a reef show from a nice couple from Cleveland. It is a really awesome piece!! I have done my research on it and know that it needs low light and water flow plus it has to be regularly fed to survive. I have has been over two weeks...

    I'm going on a work trip for 10 to 14 days. It will be hard enough to get my wife to feed my fish, change my filter socks, and empty the skimmer while taking care of three kids ages 4 and under. I already know a water change is out of the question. I normally direct feed my sun coral every 3...

    Hi there! My tank is looking healthier and I have had a lot of recent growth. The reef is two years old. It's a 50 gallon. It has a skimmer, rodi unit, I use instant ocean I think for salt. I got a new t5 daylight bulb, 12,000k. Looks good just thought I would share:)

    I regrettably purchased an orange sun coral about a month or so ago, it had nice color but was retracted due to the lights, well, I have had it all this time and it has not come out. I attempt to entice it with brine and Cyclops, but nothing. It has begun to slowly die off. It has nice color...

    i brought my first frag of coral today. Dealer calls it a sun coral and tells me it has to be fed every couple of days. My question is sun coral the correct name and if it is what is the scientific name for them?

    quick question, I have a sun coral with about 40 heads and was looking for a peaceful coral to put next to it. I have read that the dendros are peaceful and require the same general care. Will these corals harm each other if place next to one another in a LPS only tank? Side note, my sun...

    I'm thinking of adding to my corals and livestock and I saw some things I really like. I love the look of sun coral and have read quite a bit about it, namely that you definitely got to feed them as they're not photosynthetic feeders. I also like the ricordea, lots of nice colors. I am also...

    I have a sun coral that I am wanting to frag. The only problem is that it is growing on a old oyster shell. So my question is should I just break the shell, and if I do will it hurt the coral. If it will i will not do it just wondering if anyone has any experience with this. The Coral is...
