    I bought this coral this morning becaue I loved the color and thought it would be a good addition to my tank. Yet the guy that I got it from didn't know what it was. And I am currently not having the greatest luck finding it on the web.

    I am hoping that I can get some help Identifying it so that I can do alittle more research on the coral so that I will know how to care for it properly.
    Here is a picture. it was taken right after I put it in my tank.

    Thanks for all the help!!

    carnation coral. very hard to keep, lots of plankton feedings needed.

    NPS coral, carnations are hard unless you have a species setup for them
