    Just a stupid question. About a year ago I bought a sun coral (believe it must be a dendro) with a somewhat pinkish color. After weeks of failing to get it to eat I placed it in the tanks' sump. Now after all these months it still got its pinkish color. Could it still be alive? Is its color suppose to change to white when it's dead?

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Photo perhaps...but a good indication would be to see if it's very fragile pollops extend.. one way is to place some zooplanton into the sump after lights out then give it about half an hour and put lights on to see if the pollops make little "flowers" at the top.
