    Hi guys

    Can someone please tell me what this is, a friend gave it to me as a frag, but I'm not sure on how to care for it? And where it should be in my tank

    Yip, sun coral... Its a non-photosynthetic coral & you need to provide it with regular supplemental feedings of meaty foods... Use a turkey baster to lightly blast the food onto its tentacles when they are open.
    Preferrably place it in a semi shaded part of your tank to prevent algae growing over it.

    Sun coral. Low light. Heavy feeding (targeted)

    Sun coral needs lots of TLC, they are difficult to keep alive as mention above. Goodluck
