Lindsey, you really need to research before you buy, many corals need specialist care, you could end up losing it, which is a shame for the coral and a bit of a whack on your wallet;)

As far as i know Gorgain dont need light because they are filter feeder and have no photozella bactria like the sun coral.

Lindsay, being no expert at this I would say that is Diodogornia nudilifera due to the colours and contrasting calyces. If it is it is aposymbiotic and then lighting is irrelevant, as they have no zooxanthellea. Not the end of the world though. They feed on zooplankton and phytoplankton. I feed mine the following and they seem to be doing well. I use a mixute of Cyclopeeze, Coral Frenzy,and a combination the following Kent marine products ( Phytomax,Zoomax+ Chromomax). I feed twice a week and mine are doing just fine. Be careful to watch that algae does not grow on them due to the light. But nothing a light brush can't solve. This mix is good for your other corals as well so no wastage. The Kent product is highly concentrated and I only use 1 drop of each per feeding.

You are so modest ;)
