    Anyone wants a suncoral? I'll swop you for a softy of some sorts. I'm in PMB and willing to deliver(and pick up my softy) in not too distant KZN area.

    Suncorals are actually living in caves and creveces, they don't like/need light and needs to be fed at least 3 times a week. They feed on phytoplankton and zooplankton. Coral frenzy should be 100%, a bit better than cyclopeeze I would say.
    How long is your tank running and with what?

    Way too soon to introduce corals, your tank needs to cycle fully first and only after you tested your water parameters and everything are within acceptable limits, then only can you start introducing corals.
    1) do you have live rock in?
    2) did you test water already?
    3) do you have a refractometer(to test your salinity) ?
    4) What skimmer are you running?
    5) Any fish in?
    Hope you don't use bio-balls in your sump.

    Sounds good, don't use a hydrometer - they are not accurate. You can get a refractometer at Eco-aquatics for cheap - and they work lekka.
    Where do you stay?

    Do you wanna buy it, seeing that you got nothing to swop?

    Is it difficult to keep, and does it require target feeding ?
