any non-photosynthetic coral is going to be very hard to maintain, especialy in a small tank (im assuming it would go in your 10g). i bought a carnation tree for my 20g but within a few days it was withering and died. they need a constant supply of zooplankton suspended in the water column to feed on and its very hard to keep that much food in the tank without having your nitrates go crazy and crash the tank. they might look cool, but IMO NPS corals should be left in nature...
