hi Guys, I bought the below peice of rock today with all corals attached ( combo deal)

My question is, should I split them up or should I leave them on the rock for now?

Looks like a gonipora, "donut" open brain and a sun coral. Any recommendations?

Id split, those corals need different requiremnts (light/food/flow/substrate)

Thanks @459b what would you recommend?

I understand that the Gonipora needs high light and mediumish flow?

In almost no time they will start stinging each other and trying to eat each others faces off. you need to give them more space than that just incase they get a bit rowdy.

They can all acclimate to similar if not the same tank conditions apart from the branching Sun which doesnt care about light.

I would make sure they all get good flow and they should be fine under moderate to high light after aclimation
