Re: Feeding Sun Coral #2
Karen,
My tank is a rio 400. I bought another set of lamps/flaps and reflectors from Aquacare (www.aquacare.co.uk), so I now have 4 T8's with reflectors above the tank. They may have something similar for your tank.

Re: Feeding Sun Coral #4
Agreed I have done a lot of reading on these aswell. Ive posted another picture to show where mine is in the tank in relation to everything else. The water circulation passes right through between the 2 sets of rocks and again tonight when I feed the fish it came out again so I definitely feel I have struck it lucky. I'll try and get some pictures of it feeding if I can.

Good luck with yours I'm sure you will succeed. Ive seen the pictures of your tank and even though I have a 5 footer I am envious of your setup. It looks superb.

Re: Feeding Sun Coral #6
thanks for the advice, I didnt intend to make it sound so simple, Im just pleased its already come out, it seems thats the hard part.

I read what everyone has said re feeding so I will be feeding it individually.

Re: Feeding Sun Coral #7
I dont know whether its beginners luck but I bought a Sun Coral today. Placed it in the tank in a nice shaded area under some rock this afternoon. 3 hours later ,I turned of the skimmer, fed my fish with a marine mix and included some Red Plankton (LFS recommended) and the little beauty came out!! I couldnt believe it. Original Image

Re: What is Live Rock? #8
Bump

thanks think I saw someone somewhere say about filling there cannister with live rock rubble would this be a good idea instead of the filter media. Would the rock be ok without light?

Re: Where to buy corals #10
thanks for the replies.
Thats the problem I dont want to buy what I cant see and choose, same with fish. I have only had my tank up and running for 2 months so swapping frags is out of the question, although I wouldnt know where to start if I could. Who/where would I buy frags from?
