    Gah you people are quick! :eek:
    Mayan Sun Favia
    At 16" under 4x T5, all ATI
    Medium flow, good undertow going past it
    Keep it at regular param levels, nothing really special.
    As for light, this particular one has exhibited the best coloration in low light, bringing out gold and red hues around the polyp's center.
    Key to keeping it happy: FEED FEED FEED! This thing devours anything I put in the tank with gusto and will puff up happily for days afterwards.

    Dendros
    Scientific Name: dendrophyllia
    Lighting: N/A (they are non-photosynthetic)
    Flow: moderate

    My care notes: First off, these guys need to be target fed in order to survive since they are non-photosynthetic. They will readily accept any meaty foods. I like to feed mine either frozen mysis or some Rod’s food. As a treat, I’ll give them a few live brine shrimp. They are decently sticky and have a moderate sting so they quickly grab a hold of and subdue the little shrimp. In order to achieve a good full extension during the day, be sure to only feed them during the day. I’ve noticed that if I feed them during the night, then they typically don’t open as full for that day. As far as flow, mine have been placed in low, moderate, and high flow areas. The greatest extension was noticed under moderate flow, enough to get them swaying nicely. As with any other coral, keeping your levels stable, frequent water changes, and every other good husbandry practice is a good idea. All in all, they are a pretty hardy coral, mine survived my tank breakdown, 17-18 hour drive to my new place, and then the setup of the new tank. Their color is amazing and unlike any other coral I’ve seen or owned.
