    If the pearl coral is this one Pearl Coral, Bubble Coral, Plerogyra flexuosa ,
    then yes, it is very hardy.

    It needs low flow and will appreciate medium light.

    Meat coral might be any of at least 3 different corals, you don't perhaps have a scientific name for it? They are normally hardy and prefer the same conditions as the pearl. Depending on the exact species, it might do better on the sand or fine gravel(crushed coral or aragonite)

    Get a piccy up Furbz, we'll have a go at giving it a proper name.
