    Not much and not much...

    It matters where all corals are placed. There are a lot of corals refered to as moon corals though. Is this a Favia, Goniastrea, Diploastrea?

    Goniastrea are pretty tolerant of a wide range of lighting and flow. Seem to do best with a bit more light than acan lords, but still on the lower end. Probably 80-200 PAR range is fine. For flow, they tend to be pretty tolerant too. Low to medium flow should be fine. They can handle more, but better to keep it low to moderate if possible IME.
