    Hi All,

    Just wanting some confirmation on two coral ID's please:
    1.jpg 1 (2).jpg

    Am i right in identifying
    The first as a Orange Sun / Cup coral - Tubastraea faulkneri?
    The second as Precious Coral - Corallium rubrum?

    Sorry about the poor pic quality..

    Just want to be sure I'm giving the right amount of light/water movement/ feeding etc.

    Thanks in advance..

    First one is a sun coral and the second looks like some type of sps maybe a blue ridge coral, maybe someone else can identify that one. The sun coral requires direct feeding in each polyp basically everyday (not for a beginner).
